Certificates of Achievement

Pasadena City College offers more than 70 certificate programs in 37 different subject areas throughout California's 15 industry sectors. Students interested in developing advanced levels of proficiency should consider completing a certificate of achievement program that provides the knowledge, skills, and abilities to seek employment in their chosen field of study.  Some professions may require state and/or federal certification for licensure exams in addition to the certificate of achievement. 

Completing the specified curriculum with "C" grades or better will allow the student to petition for their certificate in the Division with program oversight to that discipline and it will be posted to their official PCC transcript.  Below you will find each program's description, cost, graduation rates, information on career fit, and employment opportunities.
