  • 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/
