Skills Certificates

"Skills Certificates" are lower-unit certificates in various occupational areas. Although the awarding of Skills Certificates is not noted on a student's official transcript, the student may apply for and receive a documentation certificate from the college that may be of value in documenting knowledge and skills to potential employers. In many cases, entry-level Skills Certificates may be part of a ladder-track of increasing levels of preparation in an occupational area, and courses used to complete them may form a core of requirements that are augmented as students pursue higher levels of proficiency toward a Certificate of Achievement. Note: The unit requirement for Skills Certificates is below that required for some forms of financial aid eligibility. Students should consult with the Financial Aid Office to determine whether a particular program of study qualifies for financial aid.
