Micro-credentials are short training modules where industry level certifications are broken down into individual skills or specific competencies. Similar to a Boy Scouts badge, these micro-credentials signify accomplishments such as completion of a project, mastery of a skill, or marks of experience.

When stacked together, micro-credentials help individuals step into the employment continuum. Knack’s credentials can be awarded by any supportive organization or institution. This kind of certification is a fundamental change in the way society recognizes learning and achievement—shifting from a traditional books-and-lecture to a model with multiple accessible knowledge streams.

Originally meant as digital badges, the Knack community currently opts for smaller cards that our learners earn.
