Looking to get the most out of your time at UPEI? Want to develop and market your employability skills? Our programs allow you to learn and practice skills through hands-on workshops, online activities, and community-based experiences. As you complete training with us, you will earn digital badges. 

A digital badge is a micro-credential, verified by UPEI, that students can earn and display to showcase specific sets of skills and competencies. Display your badge to employers to showcase your skills and competencies on LinkedIn, your ePortfolio, and other online platforms.
