IBM Digital Micro-Credentials Program
A Digital Credential is a cross-industry digital recognition of technical skills which can be shared on your social and professional networking sites, as well as your digital signature.
IBM is supporting this program, based on open standards, through the creation of a wide variety of credentials covering a multitude of technical and professional areas.
Digital Credentials are an exciting feature IBM MyLearning users get access to. For both professional and personal academic enrichment, digital credentials offer validation for high-demand sets of competencies in today's competitive job market. Taught formally by an expert instructor, learners are guided through the credential acquisition journey and are met with a variety of activities and evaluations to monitor and document skill progression. Different digital credentials can also be pursued concurrently and/or sequentially to upgrade and fortify users existing credentials, ultimately strengthening their professionally accredited skill profile.
