Digitally certified and stackable

Digitally certified and stackable

Each learner’s course work is individually assessed and digitally certified. If you want a comprehensive understanding of a certain topic or area of expertise, you can register for multiple micro-credentials and stack them.

Stackable credentials are valuable for learners wanting to pursue formal programmes in higher education. A specific combination of micro-credentials can be stacked and recognised as equivalent to degree modules. Enrol for degree programmes at SACAP South Africa and apply for module exemption with the micro-credentials that you’ve completed online.

What are micro-credentials and short courses?

Micro-credentials and short courses help you gain skills that deepen your knowledge and professional competency. Courses are classified as ‘credentials’ when evidence of a skill set is demonstrated by a learner.

SACAP Global’s human-centric micro-credentials and short courses are practical, academically robust and outcomes based. The course assessment verifies the attainment of specific skills and knowledge, and learners are issued with a digital certificate and badge.
