What are Micro-Credentials?

A Micro-Credential is a digital representation of a competency that a learner can demonstrate. By earning a Micro-Credential, you are able to identify skills to strengthen your competitiveness as a current student and for your post-graduation success. Micro-Credentials are available online, in-person, or hybrid formats, and are taught by members of the FIU faculty and staff team.

Enhance your resume with badges

Upon completion of your Micro-Credential, you'll earn a digital badge. These serve as a representation of your learning. They are digital proof of knowledge and skills earned. Badges can help you put together your resume or fill out your LinkedIn or digital portfolio.
