Certificate Programs

Professional Development

Whether you are looking to develop a new career, make a career change or enhance your existing art or design skills, CCS's certificate program in Professional Automotive Modeling can help.

As a student in our certificate program, you will be required to complete a series of courses that are tied to a set curriculum. Certificate courses can be taken at the college credit (3.0) or non-credit level, and you can enroll without becoming a full-time student. You can complete a Certificate in as little as three semesters. Students must apply and be accepted into the certificate program before enrolling in any of the certificate level courses.
