If you are looking for opportunities to meet professional development requirements or industry workforce development, a micro-credential from Australia’s largest regional university can help you get there.

Our micro-credentials are designed alongside industry to prepare you with opportunities to update and advance your professional and industry knowledge and skills. Our strong relationships with numerous industry and professional body partners, from public and private sectors, allow us to deliver real benefits to you and your development as a professional.

At completion, each micro-credential is awarded with a digital badge as your high-tech verifiable record of the knowledge and skills that you’ve earned. Your badges can be organised into a portfolio, shared online or downloaded, and look great to prospective employers. You can also download a Certificate of Completion.

Our micro-credentials courses are hosted on Be Different and you can view our full range of digital badges on Credly.
