What is a micro-credential? It’s a certification in a highly specific competency area, and it can make a macro impression on your résumé, your LinkedIn and social media profiles, and every one of your email signatures.
Earning one is also a shorter and more affordable process than what’s entailed with a traditional certificate. The credential can be completed online in two to four weeks at your own pace, so you can fit the coursework into your schedule.
Earning a micro-credential is do-able for just about everyone. There are no pre-requisites, your academic background can be in any discipline, and you don’t have to be a current student or even have a degree.
