Micro-credentials

Red River College has partnered with the Learning Resources Network (LERN), the world’s largest association in continuing education and lifelong learning, to offer new, online micro-credential courses that align with some of the most desired skills sought by industry and those looking to start a side gig.

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.

Main Takeaways

Red River College’s 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 that start each month and will never be cancelled.
  • Complete most courses in less than a month.
  • Earn micro-credentials certificates that immediately show off your skills to employers.
