Adult Development and Aging (CCL)
The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Adult Development and Aging will prepare individuals to enter the family life education, human development, or child and family organizations field at the paraprofessional level. Students at a paraprofessional level can expect to find employment opportunities in adult day care centers, crisis intervention programs, group and halfway houses, hospice care, senior citizen centers, social service agencies (both private and State/local government), facilities for the disabled and developmentally challenged individuals, community mental health clinics, psychiatric facilities, shelters and other child and family, community-based organizations.
You must obtain a "C" grade or better in all courses required within the program.
Some CFS courses are offered only once a year; be sure to consider this in your academic planning.
If you are interested in continuing your education, the courses in this certificate program may be applied toward the Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Family Life Education (Adult Development and Aging) emphasis if you wish to continue your studies.
