Micro-Credentials

A Micro-Credential from Post University Can Help You Stand Out from the Crowd!

 

Help Your Personal and Professional Skills Stand Out with Career-Building Micro-credentials

At Post University, we mean it when we say we make education personal. From concentrations to online learning options, we go beyond typical degree programs to help you explore every opportunity to customize your education to your goals—personally and professionally.

That’s where a FOCUSED micro-credential can make a world of difference, even beyond your degree.

 

What Is a Micro-Credential?

Micro-credentials are efficient and effective ways to develop new skills and provide resume-ready proof of your new capabilities. Often completed as part of your current course work, they are both the skill and the validation of mastering that skill. That validation—whether as a digital badge, massive open online course (MOOC), or micro-award—can be added to professional profiles to help new graduates and aspiring professionals stand out.

Micro-credentials come in a variety of forms—from specialized technical skills (such as Google Analytics, FEMA Logistics, or CompTIA IT Fundamentals) to professional skills that transcend career fields, such as emotional intelligence or conflict resolution. In other words, many of these learning experiences can be combined to meet more advanced certificate requirements down the line.

Whether you are a student or a busy working professional, a micro-credential can help you reinforce a skill, make a career switch, or simply satisfy your curiosity. On campus or online, micro-credentials are a fast-paced option to build relevant skills, meet goals, and get a leg up on the competition.
