Noncredit "Certificates of Competency" are Chancellor approved sequences of courses in Basic Skills, Career Development, English as a Second Language (ESL) or Secondary Education programs. These certificates allow the student to develop individual competencies based on their personal educational goals and objectives. Each certificate is unique, but all provide the student an opportunity to gain skills necessary to advance in their careers, transition into a new career, or prepare for future advanced academic studies and training.
Noncredit "Certificates of Completion" are Chancellor approved sequences of courses offered in short-term vocational programs with high employment potential. Many of these certificate programs mirror those offered through the credit programs of the college, are favorably recognized by business and industry, and are frequently used as a requirement for professional advancement. Students who enroll in any noncredit certificate class must meet all requirements outlined in the instructor's syllabus, including completion of all assignments, taking tests, and passing the class with the equivalent of a “C” grade. Classes taken are noncredit, and do not generate college units toward a degree.
