Certificate programs are ideal paths of study for people who want a better understanding in an area of study. They can provide people with an education outside their specialty. For instance, lay leaders in churches can use a certificate program to strengthen their understanding of Christianity and enhance their leadership skills. Certificate programs can also help people focus their area of study, after general training. For example, people who want to teach English as a second language (TESL) often take an accredited certificate course in TESL.
Below is a list of schools that offer certificate programs between six months and two years long. Some are accredited, while others are not. For more information about a school, click on its link.
