What is a Micro Certification? What is an example of one?

A Micro Certification is just a cert regarding only one small topic. For example, how to do subnetting. Or what is TCP/IP. It’s like watching a bunch of youtube videos and then doing a test at the end of it. For some people it’s great for others its pretty dumb. Myself, I find its good for my personal interests, and if someone out there thinks its legit enough to hire me for it… well then bonus!
