What Is a Micro-Credential?
A credentialing program verifies that an individual has met certain criteria to determine mastery of key concepts as defined by an issuing organization. Professionals are increasingly becoming responsible for their own professional development. Micro-credentialing allows an individual to choose an area of extreme interest and need and go deep rather than accumulating multiple courses over multiple topics. It also provides a much-needed resource for demonstrating to hiring agencies that you have sought intensive continued learning in a specific area.
