Designed to be meaningful, high-quality education programs to verify, validate and attest to specific skill sets and competencies of an individual, microcredential programs differ from degree and certificate programs in that they are generally offered in shorter or more flexible time spans with a narrow focus.

The Agribusiness and Hospitality  (Value Added Food Processing) Micro-Credential will provide producer training on entrepreneurship, marketing, sanitation and safety and food and beverage management.  The goal of the microcredential is to increase producers knowledge and product availability to the local community.

Students who complete the Agribusiness and Hospitality (Value Added Food Processing) microcredential earn ten college credit hours that may later be transferred to one of Jefferson's certificate or degree programs. Agri-Business and Hospitality course requirements are a perfect fit for JCC's Hospitality & Tourism AAS or Applied Business Studies AOS degree programs.
