Competency-Based Education

Akilah Certificate Courses follow a competency-based education (CBE) model. CBE is an outcomes-based approach to learning that requires students to demonstrate mastery of specific skills and concepts, rather than memorizing theory or completing credit hours.

CBE is particularly effective for professional development because it focuses on what students know and can do. CBE gives learners an advantage in the job market as they can demonstrate concrete skills to employers.

Benefits of Akilah’s CBE Model:

Students move through the content only after mastering key concepts and skills, ensuing a personalized learning experience.

Every assignment, project, and test serves a purpose: to provide students with skills they can use outside the classroom.

Akilah collaborates with regional employers and industry experts to identify exactly what students need to know. Our courses are regularly updated to reflect current industry standards.

Akilah’s curriculum was developed by international experts in CBE and uses the latest learning methods.
