Certification and Licensing

In addition to required coursework for the Workforce Certificate, students may also pursue up to 12 hours of college credit courses as a supplement to their certificate as a non-degree seeking student or through course auditing (although the full cost of tuition applies, even with an audit). Any college courses without prerequisites may be utilized (ex: culinary courses, office administration, theatre/performing arts, etc.) for this purpose. Students then can add applicable coursework to their resumes to show proficiency in a specific area. If a student wishes to return at a later date to pursue a degree program in that field, credit would be applied at that time for all college credit courses previously completed.

Career Opportunities

This program is designed to facilitate skill development in students seeking employment in any career field of their choice. Upon successful completion of program requirements, graduates will receive a Workforce Certificate issued by the College, which may be presented to employers or listed on a resume. With a mixture of classroom learning and internship opportunities, students will leave FSCJ with the knowledge, skills and experience to obtain and maintain desired employment.
