What is a Certificate of Achievement?
Upon completing a certain number of courses in a specified discipline, students will receive a certificate of achievement from Cambridge College as recognition of their training achievement. These programs are designed to be completed relatively quickly and increase the student’s marketability by demonstrating to employers that they have developed or improved skills in these focused areas. The courses may also be transferable to related Cambridge College degree programs, reducing the amount of time required to obtain a degree.
