Institutions launch new micro-credential programs

January 17, 2022
Three institutions have launched new micro-credentials. Humber College has launched the RapidSkills, Advanced Manufacturing Micro-credentials, which are designed for people who are unemployed, underemployed, or in need of credentials to recognize their skills. The micro-credentials are stackable and provide both theoretical and hands-on training to prepare students for jobs in areas with a labour market need. Athabasca University’s PowerED has partnered with McGill University to offer a Digital Wellness 101: Optimizing Your Time and Energy micro-course. The course will focus on teaching participants about digital wellness and how to incorporate balance into their relationships with technology. AU | Humber (National)
