What is a Microcredential?
Microcredentials are certifications of assessed competency in high-demand skills and knowledge areas that are industry-recognised and can be achieved in shorter timeframes than other AQF award qualifications. Built from the individual units of Vocational Qualifications, AIM Microcredentials give you the opportunity to focus your study and upskill only in the area aligned to your goals.
