YCCC Certificate Programs are intended to equip students who are looking to enter the job market quickly with the skills they need. All of YCCC’s Certificate Programs are “stackable” - designed to allow the student’s Certificate credits to transfer into the Associate Degree program. Many students are choosing this option which allows them to earn the credentials they need to get started in their chosen career field and then complete their degree part-time while working.
Certificate programs at YCCC are designed to lead to either employment and/or college transfer, and we want to provide prospective students with gainful employment disclosure information prior to admission/enrollment in those programs.
