Certificates & Employable Skills
Certificate Programs are for students who want an education beyond high school in order to start in a meaningful
career, or to advance in one. LTCC's certificate programs provide opportunities for
students to get the skills they need for a wide variety of careers. In most cases,
courses needed to earn these certificates are also transferable to four-year schools
- so if your academic goals change, earning a certificate can still help you advance
towards earning your AA degree and eventually a BA degree.
