Micro Credentials

Flexible, dynamic building blocks to build your career success

What Are Micro Credentials?

"Just in time" not "just in case" learning

Micro credentials (also known as microcredentials) are targeted pieces of certified learning that allow learners to gain new professional skills and boost employability quickly and efficiently. Micro credentials allow learners to focus their study to their the area of knowledge need, and offer dynamic, current and relevant content in an ever evolving professional environment.

  • Have a clear industry-based learning outcome

Frequently Asked Questions

How are micro credentials different from short courses?

A micro credential is a short piece of learning delivered by a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which have a clear, industry-based learning outcome.

Short courses are not required to have this same industry-based focus, and may be delivered by non-accredited training organisations and may not deliver the same standard, and may not receive the same level of industry recognition and respect as a credential completed via QTC.

How does micro credential "stacking" work?

Many micro credentials cover content and assessment activities aligned with higher level courses delivered by QTC Training and Education.

Combine one or many "stackable" micro credentials to build to accreditation of part or all of your target qualification. Download the Micro credential Handbook at this link for more information and specific course mapping.

Recognition of learning is guaranteed with QTC Training and Education courses only.
