Microcredentials are time-based, multiple-choice assessments that evaluate knowledge of evidence-based practice with relevant clinical scenarios. There is no specific preparation needed; however, there is a content outline available for each microcredential that includes topics that will be assessed. Reviewing the content outline before taking a microcredential may be helpful for preparation.

It is recommended that you have experience in one of the following areas before earning a microcredential:

  • Direct client service
  • CEU course training
  • Teaching or mentoring
  • Conducting or presenting research
  • Authoring journal articles, books, chapters, or CE materials

Display your achievement proudly to colleagues, employers, and beyond. Integrate the digital badge into your email signature and share your success on social media. Your commitment deserves recognition!

Earn units that can be applied to certification or state licensure renewal.

New microcredentials are expected to be released in late 2024.
