Professional Development

Develop Professionally—Develop Yourself


The safety of our students, faculty and staff is our highest priority. Given the guidance from the CDC and Governor Newsom, all Fall 2020 courses will be held virtually. You may follow our updates by selecting the banner at the top of our website. Thank you for your patience.

Professional development programs are short-term programs designed to help you learn a new skill and advance or change your career more quickly than a traditional degree program.

Certificate Programs

Certificate programs are generally completed in 3-24 months and include a certificate at the completion of the program. This certificate helps you demonstrate your knowledge and experience in the subject. You can learn more about what a certificate is on our What is a Certificate? page.
