Certificate in Less Than One Year
We measure progress by the skills you’ve mastered — not by how many hours you’ve spent in the classroom — so you can move at the speed that’s right for you. Students can complete their certificate in 8-10 months with an average weekly commitment of 6-12 hours.
Academic and Career Support
In addition to tutoring and academic support, our career services team can help you prepare for your job search, from practicing interviews and refining your resume to virtual events with employers and industry professionals.
“I want to tell you what a positive experience Calbright has been for me. I enrolled because it was free, but over the past year of my life Calbright has done more for me than I ever thought possible.”
“I was never much into social media or any of those kind of platforms. But (Priya) helped me set up my LinkedIn profile and set up my webpage. She was super helpful. Career Services ended up helping me connect with so many other people who could shed insight on what I was doing, on ways to navigate my path and goals and then help me out. So many lights started turning on. I was able to land a really good job interview already.”
“I love working with PCs, I’ve been doing it for years, but I was never doing it professionally. So when I started Calbright, I sometimes suffered from imposter syndrome: could I really start a career in IT? Then one day, I noticed my PC was being really slow, so I started to troubleshoot. I ended up switching out the operating system to make it faster and smoother than ever – and I realized that’s exactly what I’ve been studying in my Calbright classes! I was surprised at how much I’d learned. This is real, and now I’m telling other students: don’t feel like an imposter. We can really do this.”
“My experience with Calbright so far has been amazing. I’ve already gotten a better job. I left my administrative assistant job for a company that works in robotics. I didn’t believe that I was qualified, but Calbright’s Career Services helped me make my resume appealing to the kind of company I wanted to work for.”
