Stacking Micro-Credentials

Stacked micro-credentials, like many other types of credentials, represent individual achievement and mastery in specified areas. Over time, a learner’s portfolio of acquired skills may combine to provide a competitive advantage and/or improve employability in the workforce.

It is important to note that stackable micro-credentials are not a type of credential. The term stackable refers to a framework whereby an individual acquires knowledge and develops skills through a series of micro-credentials. This portfolio of micro-credentials may be used to earn larger certifications.
