CCV to begin fall semester on Sept. 8
MONTPELIER — 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.
“Most of the courses are discipline-specific in order to prepare students for the particular work they’ll be performing,” said CCV Academic Dean Deborah Stewart. She also notes that the certificate programs are stackable — students can take the courses they complete in the certificate and apply them to the relevant associate degree program.
CCV’s fall semester begins Sept. 8.
