CONCORD— NHTI-Concord’s Community College (NHTI) is pleased to Microcredential Programs online through the Business, Training & Workforce Development Center beginning in May 2020.

Microcredentials have gained popularity in recent years to participants target skills and gain the education needed to advance in a specific profession or qualify for an entry level position.  In education, for instance, teachers often obtain microcredentials for recertification or additional certification pathways.

The microcredential programs being launched at NHTI target specific focus areas that include Early Childhood Education Pedagogy, Teaching for All Learners, Basic Toolkit for Teaching, Math for Engineers, Math for Business, Business Leadership, IT Help Desk Technician (A+ Certification alignment), Understanding Addiction and The Four Domains of the Certified Recovery Support Worker (CRSW).

These targeted programs are a fast track to improving professional practice and career advancements as they do not require a formal admission process and are conducted online and in as little as 8 weeks.   Additionally, all coursework may be transferred into an official certificate or degree program.
