What is a micro-credential?

Micro-credentials are short, focused credentials designed to provide specific career critical skills, competencies and knowledge that can be readily transferred to the workplace.

Micro-credentials give you the freedom to learn what you want, without the financial and time commitments of a formal degree. They take less time to earn than a traditional degree and can give you a competitive edge in the workforce. For someone interested in enhancing their skills, changing jobs or even careers, a micro-credential is an effective route to getting ahead in your chosen industry.
