Certificate Programs

Certificate programs at community colleges are an excellent way to get specialized training in a shorter amount of time than it takes to earn a degree (about one year as opposed to two). Many certificates programs meet professional and government standards. Courses focus on the basic knowledge that a student needs in order to train for an entry-level position in a particular field.
