LCCC offers many certificate training programs that help you learn new career skills in
a hurry. The short-term training opportunities are perfect for those who want to train for a good job, but aren't able to commit to long-term education or training.

Credits earned for many One-Year Technical Certificate and Short-Term Technical Certificate programs can be applied to a related LCCC associate's degree or an LCCC University Partnership bachelor's degree.

  • One-Year Technical Certificate
    Coursework typically takes one year to complete and transfers into the related associate degree program.
  • Short-Term Technical Certificate
    Earn a certificate in one year or less. Coursework typically transfers into  related one-year technical certificate and associate degree programs.

Financial Aid
You may qualify to get help paying for your education! Financial aid opportunities are available for many of the short-term training programs listed here!

Individual Training Account (ITA)
An ITA is a voucher, issued by the Workforce Investment Board, to be used to pay for an eligible individual's training costs. Contact LCCC's Employment and Career Services office at 440-366-4076 for more information.

Credit vs. Non-Credit. What's the Difference?
The credit and non-credit programs both provide valuable job skills for a great career. Classes taken in credit programs, however, can often be used as a stepping stone toward an associate's or bachelor's degree.
