Career Pathways Certificates

Career Pathway Certificates

Career Pathway Certificates of Completion (CPC) are between 12-44 credits and are fully embedded in an Associate of Applied Science degree or One Year Certificate. They acknowledge proficiency in specific technical skills and are a "milestone" toward completion of a more advanced program. CPCs help students qualify for entry level jobs, enhance their current program, or advance in their current field of employment.

At Lane we divide certificates into two categories; Model A: Beginning and Model B: Advanced

Model A entry level: These are front end certificates ideal for students transitioning from Adult Basic Skills, English as a Second Language or dislocated workers looking for entry level jobs in a new career field, or those interested in short term training. These certificates may be taken independently and require minimal academic prerequisites or professional preparation.

Model B advanced: These are advanced certificates ideal for professional development of those currently employed, or those seeking to enhance their current or previous educational path. They support the development of specialized skills within a career field. In many cases they require either significant academic prerequisites or demonstrated professional expertise.

*LTOY (Less Than One Year) is a certificate that is not fully embedded in a degree
