Microcredential certificates

Our microcredential certificates are extensive courses of study, equivalent to an Education Program subject, which deliver a professional level of insight and knowledge.

They are designed with optional formal assessment requirements to enable you to tailor the level and intensity of study to meet your needs. Because they are actuarial courses, the skills you learn will fit seamlessly into the way you work every day.
