This certificate prepares students for entry-level positions in human services agencies or organizations. Students gain foundational knowledge and professional communication skills needed to work in settings that provide direct service to clients. Courses for the Human Services certificate can be applied to CCV’s Behavioral Science (A.S.) + program.
Background checks are common in some human services fields. Those with prior justice system involvement are encouraged to research employment exclusions that may arise depending on role, employer, and/or licensing criteria.
