“As I was teaching at CCV I found I was getting the most from my students when we were out in the field – they really responded to that learning style – so I helped to develop classes in the environmental science program that maximize hands-on-learning.”
Daniel Schmidt Environmental Science Faculty Member
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.
Certificate programs marked with “+” can be completed fully online.
