Enhance Your Skillset with Microcredentials

A microcredential is a short, skill-specific recognition that enables you to demonstrate your competency in a distinct area. Whether you desire to be more productive in your current role or position yourself for advancement, a microcredential is a great way to help you build new skills or fill an existing gap. 

Franklin University has partnered with Credly to translate your learning into a digital badge that is issued through the company’s Acclaim Platform. Within the platform, you’ll see the skills that comprise each competency and how those map to currently available positions, leading employers, top geographic locations and typical salary ranges.
