CERTIFICATE: 1 semester

We've recently made significant updates to our program to align it more closely with the latest industry requirements. Our primary focus was enabling our students to enter the workforce more quickly while maintaining high-quality standards.

We decided to streamline our curriculum based on valuable feedback from our students. Many expressed a desire for a more efficient and accelerated path, enabling them to transition into the professional field promptly and start earning sooner. Maintaining the rigorous standards set by our Accrediting body is of the utmost importance to us, and we took this into consideration when reformatting our program. However, none of the learning objectives were affected by these changes. We are confident that our updated program will meet and exceed industry requirements while providing our students with an accelerated path to success.

Here is the updated Certificate Pathway for your review, which provides a comprehensive outline of the courses and components included in our updated program. Our students have been incredibly enthusiastic about the benefits of the new, condensed, and stackable certificate opportunities. The changes have been met with high praise and have enhanced the learning experience.

Our revamped program offers an outstanding balance between academic rigor and timely entry into the industry. If you have any specific inquiries or require further information about our program, we would be happy to address them.
