Industry Collaboration for Micro-Credentials

Group of co-workers discussing a topic.

Like our full programs, our micro-credentials are industry driven.

In coordination with our Industry Advisory Council and partners across multiple sectors, micro-credentials are given a thorough quality assurance assessment before being opened for registration.

Working with industry drives our micro-credentials forward and determines their format:

  1. Open to the public – Designated micro-credentials are based on expressed needs by industry bodies such as associations. In these cases, officials provide the platform for any individual to engage in; or
  2. Privately for a company – These micro-credentials come at the request of a private or public sector operation and are designed to enhance their employees’ skill sets.

In either format, MITT works with the requesting body to determine the curriculum for the micro-credential, finds the best instructor suitable for the opportunity, determines whether the program will be hosted at one of MITT’s campuses or on location, and executes our custom micro-credential.  

At the end of the program, all graduates receive their micro-certificate acknowledging their completion of our program.
