What is a micro-credential?

Micro-credentials are short, competency-based training opportunities that focus on “in demand” workplace skills and provide real-world learning experiences.  Courses are developed in consultation with industry experts so that the specific skills and relevant competencies that are assessed meet the needs of employers.

Take courses individually or stack them to build larger credentials.  Multiple micro-credentials may serve as pathways to other SLC programs.

Each micro-credential earned comes with a digital badge that can be shared with employers and added to your online resume, portfolio, and profile.
