Noncredit Business Certificate Planning

About Business Noncredit Technology & Communication

Business noncredit certificates prepare students to respond to an increasingly tight job market by providing the technological and business communication skills required in the workplace.

Comprehensive instruction is offered in traditional classroom and in computer labs equipped with industry standard hardware and software. Our transcript-documented program certificates range from 45 hours to 885 hours and are Employment Development Department (EDD) recognized.

Class sizes can range from 30 students in a computer lab to 40 students in a classroom setting. The duration time of the classes varies (one-, two-, or four-day classes), and classes may include prerequisites and advisories. Classes range from 15 hours, 30 hours, 45 hours, and 90 hours. Employee inservices available upon request.
