The chart at the beginning of this section lists the certiﬁcates that LBCC offers. Certiﬁcates are awarded to students who complete speciﬁc requirements within a career and technical major. Refer to the “Program Descriptions” section for these requirements. General certiﬁcates require a speciﬁed number of credit hours. Students must have a grade point average of at least 2.00 in required courses to earn a one-year certiﬁcate.
Certificates of Completion are career technical in nature and are designed to prepare students for entry into the workforce. Certificates of Completion can be a one-year program or a less-than-one year program.
Career Pathways Certificate of Completion is an Oregon community college credential comprised of 12-44 credits that are wholly contained in an approved Associate of Applied Science (AAS) Degree or an independent Certificate of Completion (45+ credits). Career pathways help guide students towards a specific profession by providing a defined list of courses offering expert training. The various courses help lead students to completion certificates and/or degrees that identify the student as being qualified to work in a particular field. Each pathway program at LBCC provides a “roadmap” that graphically shows the certificate or degree requirements and employment outlook (with related links) that will lead students to their desired education and employment goals.
