What are direct credentials?
With NAIT direct credentials, an individuals’ existing competencies are independently certified by NAIT without requiring coursework. They are designed for people with existing knowledge learned either through work experience, formal education, or self-learning but is not formally recognized by an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution.
For employers: Use direct credentials to establish where your employee’s knowledge is in an increasingly competitive workplace. Use this knowledge to develop personalized learning plans for existing staff, to identify potential employees for internal opportunities, or to shortlist external candidates for open positions.
For individuals: Save time by certifying your existing skills without having to take courses you don’t need.
