MONTPELIER, Vt. — Beginning this fall, students will have four additional pathways to high-demand careers through new certificate programs at the Community College of Vermont (CCV).
The new certificate offerings are afterschool and youth work, cybersecurity fundamentals, IT service desk specialist and pharmacy technician. These join the College’s fourteen existing certificate programs to provide a comprehensive offering of high-value credentials that prepare students for the workplace or further education. Most certificates can be completed in just one year.
“Enrolling in a certificate program can be a great way to advance or get started on a career,” said CCV Academic Dean Deborah Stewart. “Most of the courses are discipline-specific in order to prepare students for the particular work they’ll be performing. In addition, CCV’s certificate programs are stackable. This means that students can take the courses they complete in the certificate and apply them to the relevant associate degree program.”
The College offers 11 associate of arts and associate of science degrees, and 23 of CCV’s 29 certificate and degree programs can be completed fully online.
CCV’s fall semester begins September 8th.
