Total Number of Credits Required for Certificate: 16*
*A new college orientation requirement, completion of the one-credit ACDV 101 course, Transitioning to College, went into effect spring 2010. If you are a credit student who is new to college (meaning you have not successfully completed college coursework at another institution(s)), you are required to take ACDV 101 during your first semester at CCBC, thereby increasing the number of credits required for the certificate to 17 credits. Students are required to provide an official transcript(s) to document successful completion of college coursework at another institution(s) in order for this requirement to be waived.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be able to:
demonstrate the following core competencies: communication, global perspective/social responsibility, independent learning/personal management, and problem solving skills;
use tools such as UML to plan software development solutions; and
demonstrate proficiency with object-oriented programming languages.
This certificate is designed for career programmers who wish to add an additional programming language to their skills.
