AACC Commends New Report on College Certificates Released by Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce

Community colleges across the country continue to dramatically expand and enhance their certificate programs. These education and training programs are generally one year or less in length and provide immediate employment opportunities as well as paths to further college programs. In light of this, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC) commends the just-released report of Georgetown University’s Center on Education and the Workforce, Certificates: Gateway to Gainful Employment and College Degrees. This report provides a detailed, timely analysis of the significance of certificate programs in today’s economy, and should help guide educators and policymakers.
