Earning a certificate can be a valuable first step in meeting your educational and career goals. Trident Technical College's Division of Continuing Education and Economic Development offers a number of certificates in technical processes, leadership skills and hands-on careers. Most certificates can be earned within a four-month time period and some offer discounted class rates when you sign up for a certificate track. Get ready to take that first step towards a new career. Check out the certificate options below.

What's the difference between a Career Certificate and a Career Certificate Bundle? Either selection will let you earn a certificate in your program of choice. If you select Career Certificate, you have the flexibility to register for individual classes within the certificate track and pay for each one individually. If you select Career Certificate Bundle, you are automatically enrolled in a set schedule of all classes required in the certificate program but must pay for them all together in a single fee which has been discounted.
