Professional Certification Preparation

Attaining a professional certification can help employers further validate a student's MiraCosta degree, certificate, or course work. This course provides an overview of industry-based third-party professional certifications, credentials, and licenses specific to a student's discipline of study. Topics include goal setting, a survey of professional certifications relevant to the discipline, industry trends and certification value assessment, exam preparation and exam strategies, practice exams, resolving any skill deficiencies, and life-long learning. Under the instruction of a faculty-mentor, students reflect on their prior course work and career aspirations to produce and execute a plan that outlines the necessary steps to attain the professional certification of their choice. Although students are encouraged to do so, signing up for and/or passing a certification exam is not required to pass the course.
