Partnerships & Alliances - MicroCredential Partners
MicroCredential partners collaborate with CITT to develop and deliver condensed, practical programs that rapidly educate participants on select topics.
Foundational and Introductory Transportation & Logistics MicroCredentials: Colleges, universities and workforce training centres partner with CITT and embed components of CITT's industry-vetted content to offer training that prepares unemployed, under-employed and new Canadian candidates to enter the Canadian logistics job market.

Advanced & Niche MicroCredentials: In March 2022, CITT launched our first in this series, with the Using Blockchain for Supply Chain MicroCredential, developed and offered in partnership with CBSCA.

MicroCredential Program: Using Blockchain in Supply Chain
Developed and offered in collaboration between CITT and the Canadian Blockchain Supply Chain Association, this five-week, online MicroCredential course is designed to give logistics professionals a foundational understanding of how blockchain works and how different industries use blockchain. Without requiring any previous technical or expertise around blockchain or distributed ledger technology, the course explains blockchain, its definition, strategic uses, businesses cases, and more.
This course also has a capstone case study, including the option to develop a case from the learner’s own organization to get facilitator review - allowing the learning to potentially deliver a proposal or formal recommendations to their company. Upon completion, learners will be granted the Using Blockchain in Supply Chain microcredential from CITT & CBSCA.
