Glad you think so.

I am still researching & thinking. There is a fair amount of guidance 
for how schema.org Actions can be used for potentialAction on a webpage 
or email [1 <https://schema.org/docs/actions.html>] (so encoding how 
this email lets you buy a ticket), but less for what we are interested in.

I think we are in the position to shape how AchieveAction is used in the 
context of achieving competences and credentials. Doing so will take 
some work, it is within the scope of this group, but a step away from 

The definition for AcheiveAction has this example

<!--  John achieved his exercise plan. -->
<script type="application/ld+json">
   "@context": "http://schema.org",
   "@type": "AchieveAction",
   "agent": {
     "@type": "Person",
     "name": "John"
   "object": {
     "@type": "ExercisePlan",
     "exerciseType": "biking"

CTDL does something similar with CredentialingAction 

By the way, there is also an AssessAction 
<https://schema.org/AssessAction> (similar comments apply)
