Many professionals with existing degrees in graphic design, web development, or digital video may not wish to pursue a second degree. Instead, they often pursue targeted, practical certification to supplement their skill set or learn new techniques. Additionally, employees offering professional development training to encourage job retention and minimize employee defections often find certification an attractive, cost-effective option.
As such, Polk State College offers two certificates for students who do not wish to pursue a degree. Each certificate may be completed in one or two semesters depending on students’ availability or full-time status.
