Start Small. Think Big.

Develop the skills you need to advance in your career through Career Skill Paths, short modules of skill-based training that add up to larger degrees. These flexible, online modules build towards a certificate, technical diploma, or associate degree program allowing you to earn a degree over time.

  • Modules

    Modules are courses broken down into small bits of skill-based learning. Earn college credits and a digital badge for each module you complete.

  • Courses

    Each module ladders into a one, two or three credit course in the Career Skill Path. Earn a digital badge upon completion of an entire course.

  • Certificates & Technical Diplomas

    Courses build into an NTC Certificate and/or Technical Diploma. Certificates and Technical Diplomas are short-term options to improve on-the-job skills that can help you advance.

  • Associate Degrees

    A Certificate and/or Technical Diploma along with additional general education courses can lead to an Associate Degree. According to the Bureau of Statistics, median earnings for individuals with an associate degree are approximately 19 percent higher than for people who have only a high school diploma.
