What are micro-credentials?
A micro-credential is a short, competency –based recognition that allows an educator to develop and demonstrate mastery in a particular area. Each micro-credential is short and focused on a narrow range of skills and competencies. The educator will receive a certificate and twelve hours of recertification/renewal credit after the successful completion of each micro-credential.
