Certificates typically provide students with intensive training in a specialized field. The credits that students earn to receive a certificate can often be used toward earning an Associate degree. NPRC’s Certificates provide students the opportunity for a stackable benchmark credential through a subset of courses required by any of the four Associate of Arts or Science degrees. Students who earn a certificate may choose to continue their studies at NPRC, seek transfer to another institution, or seek entry-level employment.
NPRC currently offers two certificates in General Studies and Industrial Maintenance Technology.
