I think you should research at the market value of a "certificate" as opposed to a degree of some kind. Frankly, I wouldn't enter any certificate program unless there is a guarantee that I could later progress to at least an AA degree. I admit this is colored by my experience. Back in the late 80s, I got a certificate as an electronics technician, and found out the hard way that it was so much waste paper. Employers wouldn't even consider me for an assembly line job unless I had an AA, which I had to go back and get after several months of fruitless job hunting. Your mileage with a certificate may be better in your area, but I think you should check into it first anyway. Just in case.

Marge A.

Does anyone know if there is a school in Las Vegas, NV that offers a technical writing certificate program that I can attend physically?

Are there any GREAT online certificate programs that anyone can recommend?

Thanks from a newbie.
