Microcredential Program for Personal & Professional Development

Universiti Sains Malaysia and OpenLearning Global (M) Sdn Bhd have teamed up to create a microcredential competency-based learning platform—the first of its kind in Malaysia—that enables any individual to earn recognition for skills and competencies they have learned throughout their careers and their life. USM’s Microcredential Online Learning Portal will support individual lifelong learner, educators and workforce in any organisation or industry in acquiring desired competencies aligned to their own needs and priorities. It is designed in such a way to make learning and training very flexible, manageable, convenient and most importantly very affordable.
