Accredited Online Certificate Programs

Both on-campus and online certificate programs help prepare you for certain occupations, such as medical billing, that do not demand an academic degree but require learning a specific skill set. In other fields, like engineering and education, it is important for professionals who already have a degree to update and expand their knowledge. Professional certification programs provide the appropriate education and a document that certifies you as properly trained. Accredited online certificate programs have become very popular, as they provide both convenience and quality. Request more information on certificate programs from the schools listed below!

Online Certificate Programs and Professional Certifications – Job Outlook

Certificates are available in a wide variety of occupations, but are especially common in healthcare and vocational fields. Medical transcription is an excellent example; completing a one-year certificate program qualifies you for entry-level positions. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects 8% growth in medical transcription jobs through 2022, and reports a median annual salary of $34,750 as of May 2014.

Professional certifications are also common, but their purpose is usually to expand or update knowledge you gained while earning a degree. Advancement in occupations like engineering and technology sometimes depends on such certification. BLS data indicates that civil engineers had a median annual income of $82,050 in May 2014, but top-end wages in the field were more than $128,110 per year. Adding professional certifications to your resume can help you attain those higher-paying positions.
