What to Expect
Each course is eight weeks in duration, and you can take up to two courses per quarter. If needed, you can take a quarter off. The workload is demanding, so expect to spend an average of 3-5 hours per week, per course consuming the material, collaborating with team members, and completing the assignments. While the eight-course curriculum is designed to be completed in one year, in certain situations, participants may have the ability to take one course per quarter and finish the program in two years instead of one.

Additionally, 24 continuing education units, or CEUs, will be awarded once you complete the certificate program.
