About the Certificates and Online Courses

Each certificate program consists of 3 core course and 3 elective courses which, when successfully completed, will result in a certificate of completion. Courses are “bundled” by topic to provide a wide range of relevant information in each field. Courses are only $89 each. However, registering for a complete bundle will save money! Get all six courses for $499!

Our instructor-facilitated online courses are informative, convenient and interactive. All courses run for six weeks, with two-weeks at the end to complete your studies and take the final exam. Courses are composed of 12 lessons, representing 24 hours of instruction. Courses are project-oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion areas and more. You can complete any of these courses entirely from your home or office and at any time of the day or night. A new section of each course begins monthly.
