How do Microcredentials Work?

Microcredentials can be taken individually or as part of a series of badges that can be “stacked” to learn a larger, foundational skill set.

  • Earn digital badges when you successfully complete a microcredential
  • Stack badges to level up your training and earn a series badge to demonstrate mastery in a specific area
  • Share digital badges with social networks and enhance your professional profile

Fanshawe’s Microcredentials provided me with the ability to have multiple team members participate in the same course, getting the same content delivered in a very effective manner. Microcredentials are a great training option because they don’t require too much time to participate and don’t take too much time away from other priorities. They are current, cost-effective, fast and focused, and can be easily integrated into existing training and leadership programs.
