Adding verified skills and experience to your resume can be made possible through a microcredential from Monroe Community College. Whether you want to add new skills to your resume or round out your degree, this can be made possible with a microcredential — without slowing you down.
A microcredential is a short-term series of coursework offered in a variety of discipline areas and in-demand fields that give students expertise and skills in specific areas. A microcredential might give you the edge to enter a new career field or expand your current career opportunities.
When you complete a microcredential, you will receive a digital badge from MCC. Completion of a microcredential can be added to a resume, letting current and potential employers — and your professional network — know that you are proficient in a subject matter.
MCC has a growing number of microcredentials available that set the standard for nationally and internationally high-quality, stackable credentials designed with you in mind. Microcredentials are:
Stackable: Many microcredentials are “stackable” meaning that they can be applied towards credit for a certificate or degree program.
In-Demand: Each microcredential has been designed to meet the current and emerging market needs, in addition to aligning with relevant industry standards.
Portable: Completion of microcredentials is recorded on your MCC transcript and/or highlighted in a SUNY digital badge, allowing the benefits to travel with you. A digital badge offers verified proof of competency and documents specific skills you gained through learning.
Online or In Person: Many of our microcredentials can be completed online or in-person, allowing you the ultimate flexibility to complete the coursework.
Students and working professionals seeking to improve their ability to collaborate and work successfully with diverse populations can become equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive in diverse settings.
