Continuing and Professional Studies
The Continuing and Professional Studies Certificate Programs are designed to equip our students, as quickly possible, with the skills they need to compete successfully in the current job market. All our Certified Programs are taught by experienced and accomplished professionals, and the content of courses is continually revised to meet today's industry standards.
A High School Diploma or a General Education Diploma (GED) is a prerequisite for acceptance into all CPS Certificate Programs. This prerequisite coincides with the minimum requirements of employers.
