Frequently Asked Questions
A digital credential is the official certification of the acquisition of an individual’s skills or capabilities. It is awarded in a digital form, which is verified, secure and shareable with peers, employers and educational providers. Digital credentials can be curated, annotated, and distributed over digital networks under the earner’s control.
Micro-credentials also certify an individual’s achievements in specific skills and differ from traditional education credentials, such as degrees and diplomas, in that they are shorter can be personalised and provide distinctive value and relevance in the changing world of work.
Most of RMIT's digital credentials are short in duration, ranging from 60 minute snippets to several hours of learning - all of which can ultimately be stacked or clustered to create more extensive learning programs spanning the equivalent of 5 to 6 weeks.
You can go to the RMIT Creds landing page at www.rmit.edu.au/creds, and explore the credentials available to you from there.
RMIT recommends using Chrome as your browser to deliver the optimal experience in enrolling in digital credentials. Other browsers are supported, however, there is a known issue with Internet Explorer 11 which is currently affecting completion of enrolment.
Digital credentials and badges are life-long achievements and are never revoked. However, a specific expiration date may be stated for some digital credentials. Furthermore, to ensure RMIT’s digital credentials maintain relevance in the workplace, all are reviewed regularly and older credentials may be retired and replaced by the latest version.
