Micro-learnings are short online courses designed to introduce learners to a topic that is expanded on in more comprehensive courses and certificates. Micro-learnings are a great way to decide if a longer course or certificate program is right for your needs. Micro-learnings are free, and most can be completed in as few as 15 minutes.

Courses

Certificate Programs

Certificate programs are a series of 3- 5 related courses designed to expand individual capacity for detailed and complex processes. Learners taking individual courses complete a short assessment at the end of the course, but learners taking courses as part of a certificate program submit assignments, receive feedback from experts in the field, and, upon successful completion of all requirements, receive a certificate acknowledging their achievement. Certificate programs range in cost from $210 - $350.
