What is competency-based education?

In shorthand, competency-based education means you get credit for specific skills and abilities you already have learned in your career. Earning college credits for your existing know-how means you can target your learning to areas you want to develop, so you can achieve your future goals.

You also will begin your studies with a boost of confidence, realizing that you already have what it takes to go to the next level.
