Why certification programs?

If you don’t have the time or resources to go back to school full-time, taking certification courses or attending extension programs can position you to negotiate pay raises and promotions, or change jobs altogether.

Many colleges and universities offer “continuing education” or “adult education” courses in person and online. These certifications and programs can lead to jobs in cloud security, healthcare, the trades and more.
