Graduate with hard skills – and the portfolio to show it.
During their time at Apprentice University, our apprentices will develop numerous professional skills. We document these skills using digital badges.
Badges provide a portrait of a student's skill level. A complete digital badge portfolio enables apprentices to share a detailed record of their skills with anyone.
Our certificates are collections of digital badges. Designed by industry professionals, these certificates reflect various career paths a student may pursue.
