Psychology Certificate | Northcentral Technical College



The Psychology Certificate has been developed for individuals who would like to advance in their respective fields. Soft skills, sometimes known as "people skills," are personal attributes and abilities that enhance an individual's interactions, job performance and career prospects. Unlike hard, tangible skills which tend to be specific to a certain task, soft skills are broadly applicable. They consist of personal attributes, such as optimism, common sense, integrity, time-management, motivation, sense of responsibility and interpersonal skills. It's often said that hard skills will get you an interview, but you need soft skills to keep and advance in your profession. Surveys of employers indicate the need for employees with soft skills. This certificate is especially designed to improve these "soft skills" by expanding your understanding of human behavior.
