Upskill, reskill and build skills with Professional Microcredentials

If you’re looking to progress in your career, hone-in on a specific skill or set of skills or obtain industry-recognizable credentials, a Professional Microcredential might be the perfect fit for you.

A Professional Microcredential at the Centre for Continuing Education is made up of three bite-sized Badges that are flexible, timely and aim to upskill, reskill and boost skills that are in demand by industry. This style of learning allows you to specialize in a focused range of competencies, which complement your existing experience or education and makes a great addition to your resume. In short, they enhance your employability, verify a skillset you may already have and make you more proficient in current or future roles. 

Each Professional Microcredential consists of 3 Badges. Once you’ve completed a Badge, you will receive a digital recognition of a particular skill or skill set. Badges are stackable, so completing three in a specific area within two years will earn you a Professional Microcredential — zero prerequisites required!

These accolades are industry recognizable and shareable, so you can add them to your resumé, LinkedIn profile or portfolio.
