Continuing Education Credits and Classes

Courses & Micro-Credentials

pencilsWhether you need classes for relicensure, or coursework to learn new techniques, MNU's experts are here to enrich your learning as you adapt to new standards and gain new skills. 

A micro-credential is a grouping of related online modules that share a similar focus, elevate your skill set in the area, and maximize your teaching proficiency. To earn a micro-credential, you must complete each fully facilitated online module prescribed by the program. You will receive an official certificate of completion (and badge) from MidAmerica Nazarene University at the end of the program, verifying your mastery of the content.
