Our Certificate Programs allow students to study college level classes for 3 – 12 months. After successfully completing all required courses, students will receive a Certificate of Completion. Students usually take these programs because they prefer to study for a short period and return to work. Often these programs are connected to student’s personal interests. Please visit the English Proficiency page for English Proficiency Requirement. Also note that some of our certificate programs may require pre-requisite courses.
