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.

Certificates of Achievement are issued by the Office of Enrollment Services to students who qualify for them by completing one of the occupation-centered curricula. The student must have a grade of "C" or better in all courses constituting the certificate program. 

To earn a certificate, students must complete the number of units required by the division. No certificate shall consist of less than 12 quarter units. 

To earn a certificate that requires only 12 units, all courses must be completed at Lake Tahoe Community College. Students pursuing certificate programs of less than 16 units are not eligible for financial aid.

The Employable Skills Training Certificate is a quick way of getting the skills you need to start or change your career. These certificates can be completed in under a year. The certificate combines colleges courses with real-world, hands-on instruction at a local employer to build skills and employability. This is perfect for a first-time job seeker, or for anyone who is re-entering the workforce or changing careers at any stage of life.
