Santa Rosa Junior College is a fully accredited California Community College and all SRJC CTE programs award a certificate upon completion.

Programs with 18 or more units of coursework prepare students for employment in a specific field and offer a CERTIFICATE OF ACHIEVEMENT - most can be completed in 1 (one) or 2 (two) years. The Certificate of Achievement is intended to officially declare a student’s readiness to enter the career(s) associated with the certificate.

SRJC also offers a selection of SKILLS CERTIFICATES generally requiring fewer than 18 units of coursework. The Skills Certificates are designed to offer students a brief but intensive course of study preparing them for an entry-level job or for career advancement in a chosen field.

Some programs or course require PREREQUISITES (classes that must be completed prior to enrolling). Please check for prerequisites or advisories by searching a specific certificate or a specific course outline. To obtain more information, please contact the program’s department or consult with a counselor.

Some programs also offer majors, giving the students the option to earn an ASSOCIATE DEGREE by completing the general education requirements. Students have the option to prepare to transfer a four-year college or university. See a counselor for more information.
