Boost your career and earning potential with a short-term training program. Earn a certification in a matter of weeks. In some fields, they’re an absolute requirement. In others, they prepare you for the work ahead. In all fields, they’re a badge proving your skills and dedication.
A Selection of DCC Certifications Available
Fast & Affordable Options for Career Growth
Some of DCC’s certification programs prepare you to take state or national certifying or licensing exams. Others show you’ve completed formal training and can give you an edge over other job applicants.
Certifications are fast and affordable and some can be completed in just a few weeks.
Certifications vs. Certificates
Both are short, self-contained learning sequences. If you enroll in a certificate program, you earn (and pay for) college credit. That’s great if you want to apply that credit to a degree now or in the future. A certification stands alone; it’s not intended to be part of a degree.
What About Microcredentials?
A microcredential may or may not bring college credit with it. Read the description to understand whether it fits your need.
