What are Microcredentials?
Microcredentials are short, skill-based certifications that you can earn to demonstrate your knowledge and expertise in a specific area. They’re shorter in duration and cost less than traditional courses.
Curv Microcredentials have been created with input from organizations across business sectors – so the skills you are recognized for match employer needs. They are offered in a convenient, self-paced, online format and earned in under 10 hours, spread out over two weeks.
And they’re backed by Toronto Metropolitan University’s Chang School – Canada's largest, most respected continuing education program – where you’ll have access to the personal support and guidance you deserve.
