Illinois ASBO is excited to introduce a new way to demonstrate your next level skills! Illinois ASBO micro-credentials capitalize on the industry trend of competency-based learning, while providing another means to earn PD clock hours.

A Micro-credential is not a course. It is an online, on-demand way to earn a badge that demonstrates your competency.  Learn more about micro-credentials.


Micro-credentials Have Moved!

Illinois ASBO Micro-credentials have a new home - Illinois ASBOnline! Once you register for a credential, you will gain access to the credential within this new online learning platform. You can choose whether you would like to take your credential as an Administrator Academy (along with six hours of PD credit) or to earn 20 hours of PD credit for completing your credential!


How the Process Works

1. Select a Credential.

Earn a micro-credential for something you already know, or use the credential process as a chance to grow your skillset.

2.  Demonstrate Your Competency.

Review the micro-credential document to find the learning outcomes and what evidences you will need to submit. When you are ready, submit your required artifacts for assessment.

3.  Share Your Skill! 

Upon successful completion and evaluation by an assessor, earn a digital badge that you can add to your physical portfolio, email signature or social networks.

A Way to Validate My Specific Skills

Participating in the tax levy micro-credential was a way for me to validate the specific skills and competencies I have gained through on-the-job learning and my experiences as a CSBO.  The digital badge allows me to distinguish myself from others as it conveys evidence of knowledge about the tax levy system.
