Scientific Workplace Preparation Certificate Program

In addition to providing a solid foundation for your education and career goals, EFSC's one-year Scientific Workplace Preparation College Credit Certificate (CCC) fosters skills that are critical for success in any scientific or medical position: analytical thinking, problem solving, and effective communication.

Enrolling in the Scientific Workplace Preparation certificate program will:

  • Allow you to explore health and nursing prerequisites while enrolled in any EFSC program
  • Enhance your resume if working in a related field

At EFSC, you can double the impact of your education by simultaneously working toward our Chemical Technology A.S. degree program. It includes many of the same courses required for the Scientific Workplace Preparation certificate and can even be completed at the same time.
