What are micro-credentials?

Micro-credential courses are short-form offerings that develop a learner's competency in targeted, marketable skills. 

  • Focused Learning – courses are designed to provide you with the specific skills you need to excel in your chosen field or to explore personal interests.
  • Digital Badges – technology that allows you to showcase what you know on social media and in digital portfolios and connect that knowledge to opportunity.
  • Convenient Access – offerings that are available in a flexible format, making them easy to balance with your busy life.
