Micro Credentials & Certificates

Bring the program to you and learn by using your computer.

Our Micro-Credentials and certificates allow participants to expand their knowledge or acquire new skills to enter a new industry. Our Micro-Credential courses could be stackable horizontally and vertically. This stackability means that participants can take our business and entrepreneurial Micro-Credentials and build on top of them. Also, participants can add Micro-Credentials to strengthen their managerial and non-profit skills, allowing them to enter new industries to expand their specialization areas.

When acquiring our Micro-Credentials, participants receive digital badges that could be added and promoted on social media platforms. They can also be embedded in the participant’s digital resume or curriculum vitae, allowing learners to digitally advertise the training they’ve completed and the skills they’ve mastered outside of their formal degrees.

Our Micro-Credential courses vary in time; some could be done in 48 hours and others in over 120-hour online intensives. The classes are fully online and asynchronous, which means participants can finish them at their own pace.
