FNU celebrates launch of Indigenous Continuing Education Centre, new course, digital credential wallet

The First Nations University of Canada has formally launched the Indigenous Continuing Education Centre (ICEC). ICEC will aim to share Indigenous knowledge and strengthen connections by offering Indigenous-focused short course programming, such as the 4 Seasons of Reconciliation professional development course. Individuals, professionals, communities, and businesses will be able to participate and earn digital credentials. FNU has partnered with the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) and MyCreds to provide a Digital Credential Wallet for learners so that they can access and share their credentials. “The Centre promotes a renewed relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canadians through transformative learning about truth and reconciliation, and it offers much-needed programming for Indigenous people and communities” said ICEC Director Reila Bird.
