Program Information

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Parent Education is designed to prepare individuals to enter the family life education with a focus on parent education. Students at a paraprofessional level may seek employment opportunities in adoption and foster care, crisis intervention programs, social service agencies (both private and State/local government), and other child and family, community-based organizations.

Program Notes

You must earn a grade of "C" 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: Parent Education program track.
