November 3, 2021
Medicine Hat College has partnered with Prairie Rose Public Schools to provide high school students with an opportunity to complete micro-credentials and develop skills before graduation. Students will be able to take micro-credentials in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Advanced Pilot Training, Tourism and Hospitality Management, Permaculture Design, and Rainwater Harvesting. “Employers are looking to address skills gaps now and micro-credentials provide an efficient and targeted approach to meeting their needs,” says MHC Dean for the School of Business and Continuing Studies Timothy Spielman. “Whether learning in a high school classroom or building additional career capacity as a working professional, the online and flexible delivery of micro-credentials meets learners where they are at in life.” MHC (AB)
