When does the course start?
Self-paced and hybrid courses start on the day you recieve your CANVAS log-in (typically 1 day after registration).
How much time is required of me?
Microcredentials typically require between 8 and 10 hours a week of course work. For Facilitator- led microcredentials, there is one hour a week of on-line instruction from the facilitator.
Do I have to show up for class?
Attendance during facilitated time is highly recommended as it provides the most value to the microcredentials with time to learn from industry experts, network with classmates, and deeper understanding of content. However, attendance is not mandatory and all sessions are recorded and posted afterwards on CANVAS.
How am I evaluated?
What makes a TALENT microcredential different is the final assessment. There are weekly multiple choice questions that will guide your learning progress then learners are given a final assignment where they will apply their learning to a practical assignment. A facilitator will evaluate the final assignment and award a digital badge if the final assignement is completed successfully.
How long is the course?
Microcredentials are 6 weeks long with 6-8 hours a week of course work. Self-paced and hybrid learners have the flexibility to complete the microcredential over three months at their own pace.
Will this microcredential get me a job?
Microcredentials are a great way to differenciate yourself when searching for a job. The digital badge can be added to social platforms and resumes to demonstate your skills. TALENT works closely with learners to guide and advise on learner's career journeys.
Is there any financial assistance?
We never want finances to be a reason why learners can't improve their skills and gain meaningful employment. If you have any questions about financial assistance, please reach out to us directly (email@example.com).
