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.
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.
Quizzes are administered throughout each course on a pass/fail basis.
All micro-credential certificate courses are non-credit and are delivered through LERN’s UGotClass online course platform.
