Fast track your career
Microcredentials are short, focused courses that quickly equip you with up-to-date skills to meet demands in the rapidly changing workforce. They certify your competence in a specific skill, making them a perfect option if you are looking to advance in your current career or start a new one.
Microcredentials can be taken as individual courses or, in some cases, you can take a series of courses to complete a microcredential certificate.

All microcredentials currently offered at NSCC are tuition free because they are part of Quick Train Canada, a fully-funded training program to provide workers with new skills needed to support a clean economy. They're powered by Canadian Colleges for a Resilient Recovery (C2R2) and funded by the Government of Canada’s Sectoral Workforce Solutions Program.
