In the association and nonprofit world, there’s a lot of buzz about micro-credentials.

But how are they actually different from traditional credentialing programs? What kind of education program will (and won’t) benefit from micro-credentialing? Who’s currently offering programs like this and what value are they seeing? Which micro-credentialing model is right for your specific organization. And how do you get started?

Now, get your answers directly from a top micro-credentialing consultant!

Register now for What About Micro-credentialing: Which Model (If Any) is Right for You?

In this 90-minute webinar, credentialing expert Mickie Rops takes you behind all the buzz to explain exactly how micro-credentialing differs from traditional models—and how associations and nonprofits can translate those differences into all-new value for their educational programs.

What to know and how to get started.  From what digital badges are—and aren’t—to the advantages of “stacking” micro-credentials, you’ll be able to assess whether it makes sense to add such a program (or improve a program you’re already offering). You'll also learn strategies to make implementing and managing micro-credentialing programs most successful. Plus, you’ll have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.

Reserve your space now for a practical—and strategic—look at the value micro-credentialing could add to your education program, including:

  • Key trends that are challenging traditional credentialing models
  • What micro-credentials, stacked credentials and digital badges are and how they’re used
  • The potential value of micro-credentialing for your organization
  • Different micro-credential models to use as your starting point
  • How to get started with micro-credentialing development and implementation

Remember, micro-credentialing can bring enormous value to an association’s education program.  Don’t miss this opportunity to learn whether it’s right for you, and—if so—which are the best models for your content, audience and goals.
