Earn your certificate degree online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students

To address the growing number of students seeking careers in the health care field, the college now offers a one–year Health Sciences certificate program that provides course work in the basic sciences along with a concentration in health science areas. With proper course selection, students who successfully complete the certificate can continue into one of the college’s health science programs, transfer to a four-year institution or enter the workforce in many entry-level areas within the health science field, such as home health care aide, health care administrative assistant, emergency medical technician, phlebotomist or EKG technician. This program is designed to accommodate students who wish to find employment in entry-level health science careers directly after completing the certificate. Because of its flexibility, it also can serve those looking to prepare for transfer into one of college’s health science degree programs.
