Profile When I'm Done?

What happens when i am done with Treehouse and i want to continue showing off my Badges and Point to prospective employers? Do i have to keep paying for my profile in order to link to it.....say to Craigslist or some other job board????

I would like to know the answer to this too. With Lynda.com you receive a pdf stating you finished a class and a question if you want to link your finished class to your LinkedIn account.

While I enjoy all the classes I am taking at Treehouse I feel if something ever happened and I had to discontinue my classes I would lose my badges and not be able to refer anyone to what I've achieved. True, any apps or Website I have done would be proof enough but it would be nice to point to something else.

The best i can come up with is to use the badge IMGs on my Real resume and total up the points myself, not really the same as a profile linked to the school.
