With an increasing need for continued education among those looking to build their knowledge in high-demand fields, UBC Okanagan has launched two micro-credential programs as part of its career and personal education portfolio. The first of their kind at UBCO, the two new micro-credentials will focus on the fields of technical communication and industrial automation.
The new credentials are part of British Columbia’s $4 million in funding for similar initiatives across the province. Both programs are delivered online and credentials will be issued as a non-credit Letter of Proficiency. Learners will receive a traditional paper copy of the credential as well as a digital badge that can be shared on their professional social media profiles. . .
