How Post’s Micro-Credentials Work

Incorporating Micro-credentials into Your Professional Development

Every step of the journey helps you move closer to the ultimate goal—even micro steps. The step itself may be minimal, but the impact overall can be enormous. That is the potential behind micro-credentials, incrementally building skills to help you pursue more opportunities throughout your career and your life.

Post University has aligned coursework to the competencies tested by dozens of industry leaders to offer more than 130 micro-credentials to help you make the journey. Many are designed to validate your achievement in the form of digital credentials or digital badges for students to share on professional profiles on LinkedIn and relevant industry sites.

Skill-Building Your Entire Career

Sometimes you need more technical skills to pursue a career opportunity or set yourself apart from other applicants. Sometimes you need something more generalized, as in a skill you can use on the job and in life. Post offers both:

Career-Specific Micro-Credentials

Micro-credentialing opportunities designed to meet specific needs in specific industries. Want to know more about financial accounting? SIE test prep? CompTIA IT fundamentals? Contact tracing? Associate Emergency Manager/Certified Emergency Manager exam prep? FEMA logistics? Essential management practices? We have micro-credentials to quickly meet the needs of working professionals in business, HR, management, finances, human services, IT, and more!

Human-Centered Micro-Credentials

Some professional skills transcend professions—communication, team-building, writing a resume, leadership, and more. These are essential skills for every industry, and they are in demand. When all other things are equal, these relevant badges on an online resume can make a hiring difference.

Stackable Micro-Credentials

Certain micro-credentials can be “stacked” together, in certain programs, to complete a bigger certificate program. These stackable micro-credentials provide immediate real-world skills-value while also giving you the ability to prepare for more success in the future.

Post Makes It Personal®

You need your educational opportunities your way. That is why we make resume-ready micro-credential opportunities to fit your goals, your needs, and your life:

Embedded Micro-Credentials
For degree-seeking students, every undergraduate and graduate degree program Post offers comes with an opportunity to earn a micro-credential to fit your educational plan and your career future.

Ad Hoc Micro-Credentials
Not everyone is ready to pursue a degree now, so we offer many of our micro-credential opportunities on a course-by-course basis. Find a micro-credential you like and sign up as a non-degree seeking student.

Bottom line: While not every micro-credential opportunity we offer is embedded in a program, every program has at least one micro-credential.

The Micro-Credential Process

Step 1: Choose Your Micro-Credential
As part of a degree program or taken within a single course, determine which micro-credential meets your needs.

Step 2: Pursue Your Studies With A Schedule That Fits Your Life
Do the work. Complete the material. Learn the things that will help you achieve your goals.

Step 3: Submit Your Work for Assessment
Our team of faculty will help you prepare for relevant exams administered by the credentialing providers or other requirements, when applicable, to obtain a micro-credential.

Step 4: Reap the Reward
Share your newly won micro-credential, sometimes displayed as a digital credential, with current and prospective employers online or on your resume.
