CERTIFICATES OF SPECIALIZATION

These certificates of Specialization offer specific training either for entry-level positions or to augment related programs such as Telecommunication Technician or Web Development. They are designed to demonstrate a relatively narrow expertise or skill area that may be used to attain a “niche” job or expand your professional skill set.

Students who wish to enroll in specific Microsoft applications (e.g. Word, PowerPoint) should refer to Business Office Technology.

Review the Cuyamaca catalog class descriptions and the Degrees/Certificates PDFs for additional details.
