Micro Training

MiTraining’s micro training courses are just that – a short, affordable and immediate skill update in a practical skill area.

Although our micro training courses are priced from just $59, don’t let that fool you. Each course is full of tips, takeaways and reflective questions to test and build your knowledge.

Each micro training course will take you around 3 to 5 hours to complete in one sitting, although you can save your work and return as often as you need. You’ll also receive a Certificate of Completion to add a new credential to your bank of skills.

What is micro training?

Micro training may also be referred to as micro learning or micro credentialing. Quite simply it deals with small learning units that focus on a particular skill. Courses in this category are a relatively short and self-directed learning experience.

The difference between some types of micro learning is the learning outcome.

A number of international providers such as Coursera and Udemy offer micro learning in a video-based format. That means the courses may be a series of “talking heads” sharing their expertise.

In comparison, MiTraining’s Micro Training is designed to train and teach you so that there is a tangible, practical learning outcome.

If you’re looking to close a skill and knowledge gap quickly, a MiTraining Micro Training course may be right for you.
