Miami Regionals' Microcredentials expand reach, expertise with two national partnerships
Credential As You Go and Credential Engine to expand Miami Regionals microcredentials reach
Miami University Regionals' Microcredentials are now part of two leading national credentialing networks, making its innovative, incremental professional development skill-based credentials more accessible, more versatile, and even more valuable to employers and job-seekers.
Credential As You Go has selected Miami Regionals to join the initiative's network of credentialing institutions across the country. This partnership will allow Miami Regionals to exchange best practices with other institutions and access Credential As You Go's framework and technology.
Miami University Regionals has also joined the Credential Registry, powered by Credential Engine, a national searchable database of credential programs that helps people find and compare credentials and supports a common language and system for credentialing.
Both agencies aim to improve the ever-growing field of incremental credentials for learners through research and collaboration.
"As workers and employers both search for innovative ways to adapt to a changing employment landscape, the demand for incremental education, both at Miami Regionals and nationwide, has led to rapid growth of our Microcredentials," said Ande Durojaiye, vice president and dean of Miami's Regionals campuses. "Our partnerships with these major players in the incremental credentialing world will allow Miami Regionals to continue to improve the value and accessibility of our Microcredentials and support workforce development in Ohio and beyond."
Students can complete Microcredentials that teach relevant and marketable job skills in as little as one weekend at Miami Regionals. Many are offered 100% online, making them accessible to full-time students, working professionals, busy parents, and anyone looking to learn a new skill or advance their career.
"We are excited to work with Credential As You Go and Credential Engine to expand our Microcredentials reach and give more people the opportunity to update their skillsets, advance their careers, and experience the quality of a Miami education," Miami University President Gregory Crawford said.
