What Are Micro-credentials?
Micro-credentials are shareable endorsements of knowledge, skills or competencies gained through the completion of a course or module or demonstration of understanding.
They are also known as digital badges, micro-certifications or mini-degrees, and allow employers to see immediate qualifications for the specific skills that they are seeking.
For these reasons, micro-credentials are seen as the future of lifelong learning.
Our micro-credential online courses offer several important benefits:
- Gain practical skills to advance your career or start a new one.
- Learn on your own schedule with flexible online courses.
- Complete courses quickly.
- Earn micro-credentials that immediately show off your skills to employers or clients.
