Students who want to register for a class can simply sign up before the term begins. Students can take a single class, an entire certificate or a full diploma. Certificates consist of 2 or 3 classes focusing on a particular topic area, with each class taking 10 weeks to complete. Click here to see our catalog of classes.
For example, the Relationships & Counseling certificate consists of three 4-unit courses that focus on developing counseling skills and applying those skills to working with clients on relationship issues connected to spouses, children, friends, or partners.
Taking one class per term, it takes 9 months to complete the entire certificate. An individual class is $530.00, so the entire certificate of 3 classes would cost $1,590.00.
Similar to the college credit, a unit is a measure of the time required to successfully work through the material covered. Our classes are in-depth, so expect to spend 2-3 hours per week per unit.
