To earn a micro-credential, a student must demonstrate proficiency via a performance-based assessment in each of the course's four core sub-competencies. Once a student successfully completes each of the course's four assessments, they are awarded a digital badge for that particular course.
These are instructor-led online courses. Exact Zoom session dates and times are listed under each badge. In addition to live Zoom sessions, students should plan for approximately 15 hours to complete each course's online modules and assessments. Zoom guidance will be provided prior to the start of each program.
