MONTPELIER, Vt. — Community College of Vermont (CCV) will offer seven new certificate programs beginning in the fall 2019 semester.
The new certificate offerings are administrative medical assisting, clinical medical assisting, digital media production, funeral director, graphic design, media communications, and studio art. These join the College’s seven 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.
CCV academic dean Deborah Stewart says the new certificates were developed with Vermont’s workforce needs in mind. “CCV’s new certificates are the result of the College’s increased efforts to build flexible and innovative programs that meet the immediate needs of Vermont workers, while also providing them with stackable credentials.”
Certificates at CCV are designed so that students can easily build credits toward an associate degree in a related field. The College offers twelve associate of arts and associate of science degrees. Among them, professional studies, health science, and behavioral science are new or redesigned for fall 2019.
CCV’s fall semester begins September 3rd.
