Micro-credentials

Showcase your professional ability with a micro-credential.

Engineers Australia’s micro-credentials are a demonstration of a specific competency or skill.

They've been developed in collaboration with industry and are designed to measure and assess your results in the workplace. Each micro-credential is aligned to industry standards of practice or to a recognised framework.

The range covers professional skills that are relevant for all engineers including communication, risk management and ethical practice plus sector-specific skills.

As an engineering professional, earning and displaying an Engineers Australia micro-credential is a way to showcase your professional ability to prospective employers and clients.

Pathways

There are three online pathways available for each micro-credential. Which one is right for you will depend on your level of skill, knowledge and experience in that area.

Depending on your pathway, you’ll complete a short course of study or progress directly to preparing an assessment submission which showcases the work you do.

How you will be assessed

Each micro-credential has a set of criteria aligned to the relevant, industry-recognised standard of practice or framework.

To earn a micro-credential, you need to demonstrate how the work you do meets these criteria.

You'll need to provide:

  • workplace examples and evidence to support them
  • a written explanation of the evidence and how it relates to the criteria
  • a video interview.

On successful completion of the assessment, you’ll receive a digital badge to verify and showcase your achievement.
