About Certificates

A Certificate of Achievement is issued in State approved programs designed for students who are looking for instruction with a high degree of specialization. Certificate programs offer courses needed to prepare students for immediate employment.

A Skill Certificate is created by the academic department offering the program. Students may seek increased job-related specialization, job advancement, or preparation for new employment.

A Noncredit Certificate of Instruction is one of several educational options offered within the California Community College System. It offers students access to a variety of no cost courses that can assist them in reaching their personal and professional goals.

See the list of educational programs for certificate offerings.
