A certificate of credit program enables the college to provide a short-term program in a concentrated area of study as a means to acquire a specific body of knowledge and/or develop specific career skills. Certificate programs offer employment preparation opportunities and the opportunity to upgrade skills for those who are already employed. Courses successfully completed, and the credits earned as part of a certificate program, are acceptable toward an associate degree if the student wishes to continue his/her educational pursuits. The certificate programs are not designed for transfer to a four year institution; however, the specific courses and hours completed as part of a certificate program may be used as part of a program of study that is intended for transfer. Certificate programs are available at Motlow in mechatronics, early childhood education and Emergency Medical Services. These certificate are not covered by Financial Aid.
