Cornwall Ontario – Micro-credential courses are now available at St. Lawrence College.

St. Lawrence College Micro-credentials

Micro-credentials are short, competency-based training opportunities that focus on “in demand” workplace skills. They can be taken individually or stacked to build larger certificates, and multiple micro-credentials may serve as pathways to other SLC programs. Each micro-credential earned comes with a digital badge that can be shared with employers and added to a digital profile or portfolio.

“Micro-credentials allow the student to pursue training at their own pace, and are accessible to both people already employed or those looking for work,” says Richard Wiggers, Dean of St. Lawrence College’s Cornwall Campus. “Over time, short duration skills training will support the development of a talent pipeline to ensure continued prosperity and sustainability of local businesses.”

The following  “mega” micro-credentials consist of a number of micro-credentials or units that are online, open for continuous entry, and available at a very reasonable fee for service.

Additional micro-credential courses will be rolled out over the coming weeks and months.
