What are Micro-Credentials?

A micro-credential is a professional learning pathway where students gain skill sets in a specific technical area and receive a credential within a matter of weeks. Micro-credentials are affordable, flexible, and industry based which allows a student to complete a course at their own pace while assuring they are gaining industry knowledge and skills.

Each credential is designed by subject matter experts who have extensive experience in that industry. These courses include online simulations, case studies, various technologies, and a variety of assessment methods to ensure skills acquisition. Micro-credentials demonstrate to employers the understanding of in-demand skills and industry awareness.
