(A) CERTIFICATE TYPES:

  • CERT = Certificate of Achievement – Industry-recognized credentials that are career-focused, so they are ideal for many fields, when you know what you want to study but don’t need the general education you get with an Associate Degree. They require at least 18 units, but not as much time as an Associate Degree, since there is no general education requirement. To learn more about certificates, visit http://www.marincareers.org/about-cte-programs/
  • SKILLS = Skills Certificate – Shorter certificates that are targeted to specific achievements to upgrade or advance your existing career. They are under 18 units.

(B) SEMS TO COMPLETE = Number of Semesters you can complete this program in if you follow the proscribed Career Pathway. To learn more, click on the link to the Career Program you are interested in to access the Career Pathway sheet, or schedule an appointment with a Counselor.
