Micro-credentials

Red River College Polytechnic is offering new, online micro-credential courses that align with some of the most desired skills sought by employers and aspiring entrepreneurs.

Some of the micro-credential courses are offered through RRC Polytech partner organizations and associations that specialize in continuing education and lifelong learning training.

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.
