MakeHaven Micro Credentials (Badges)

Resources

Badges typically have a video and a checkout with someone who already knows the tools to demonstrate what you learned. Some have a quiz you need to pass. That quiz will be listed on that badge's page. Once qualifications for any badge have been met a member can check that off on their website profile. This is a honor based system.

Some badges are marked as inactive because the tools or know how is not already in place. If the badge is inactive it probably means there is a good opportunity to help us figure it all out.
