AB postsecondary institutions develop, launch micro-credentials with $8M in provincial funding

Alberta institutions have begun to announce new micro-credentials following the Government of Alberta’s recent $8M investment into new programs. The $8M will be used to create 69 micro-credential programs at 21 postsecondary institutions across Alberta that will help under- and unemployed Albertans quickly upskill to fill labour needs in the changing economy. Courses cover a variety of sectors, including technology and innovation, healthcare, construction and manufacturing, agriculture and forestry, and culture and creative (TV/Film). Northern Lakes College will create an Indigenous Administration program comprised of nine micro-credential courses that can lead to an extension certificate, while the University of Alberta will create micro-credentials in areas such as computer game design, health-care simulation, blockchain for supply chain, and artificial intelligence.
