Business Noncredit

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 a traditional classroom and in computer labs equipped with industry standard hardware and software. 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 30 hours, 45 hours, and 90 hours.  

Certiport certifications are valuable, professional credentials which are globally recognized standards for digital literacy and desktop computing proficiency. Candidates who certify on these programs are much better prepared for success in both the classroom and the workplace. Through an expansive network of Testing Centers around the world, Certiport provides Test Candidates with the credentials they need to succeed.
