UNCP to Offer Professional Certification Programs Over the Web

UNC Pembroke's Office of Outreach has partnered with the country's largest provider of web-based career training courses, to provide online training courses for a variety of professions, including accounting, travel, healthcare and information technology.

The course offerings include: Administrative Medical Specialist, Advanced Coding for the Physician's Office, Medical Transcription Certificate, Coding, Reimbursement and Documentation for Physicians, Graphic Design Certificate, Security+ Certification Training, Cisco-CCNA Certification Training, Webmaster Certificate, AutoCAD 2002, Travel Agent Certificate, Cyber Travel Specialist, Project Management, Records Management Certificate, Bookkeeping the Easy Way and Revenue Cycle Management for Healthcare Providers.

"These new Web-based career training courses are ideal for individuals looking to start a new career, for first-time job seekers who need specialized training or for current workers who need to enhance their skills," said Sylvia Pate, director of UNCP Regional Center for Economic, Community and Professional Development.

The courses, instructed by Gatlin Educational Services (GES), are self-paced and open enrollment. Students are paired up with an expert tutor for one on one instruction. The courses take an average of 90 days to complete and will provide training for an entry-level position in the fields of healthcare, travel, information technology and other related areas.

"Students will love the quality as well as the convenience," Pate said. "These certificate programs are now available through the Regional Center. "The non-academic credit programs are designed to provide the skills necessary to acquire professional caliber positions for many in-demand occupations, all within a three-month delivery window."

Students will receive a certificate of completion and continuing education units of credit from UNC Pembroke upon successful completion of the program.
