A certificate program is a group of related courses designed to provide students with entry-level workplace skills in a particular field. While most certificates do not lead to an occupational license, they are often recognized by employers as a credential that demonstrates job-readiness, self-organization, and a commitment to lifelong learning. It is also possible to use the credits in a certificate program as a stepping stone to an associate degree. Students who want to work toward a certificate should meet with an advisor.
CCV currently offers certificates in the following areas: allied health preparation, childcare, clinical laboratory assistant, computer business applications, computer systems management, essential workplace skills, health information specialist, medical assistant, substance abuse services, sustainable building technology and website design.
