CERTIFICATE OF
ACHIEVEMENT
PROGRAMS
A Certificate of Achievement is attainable
in occupational programs. The certificate is
widely recognized by employers as verifica-
tion of job preparedness. Certificates of
Achievement prepare students to enter the
careers designated on their certificates.
These programs generally require a year or
more of study and include at least 18 units.
At least 12 of the units must be taken at
College of Marin.
   It is the student’s responsibility to submit
an “Application for a Certificate of Achieve-
ment” by making an appointment with the
Counseling Department.
   Certificate of Achievement programs and
requirements are listed under each discipline
in Section Six of the catalog.
Granting of Additional Certificates of
Achievement
Upon completion of all Certificates of
Achievement requirements as specified in
this catalog, a student may qualify for more
than one certificate provided that 12 of
the required units for a certificate are not
applied toward any other certificate.
Basic Skills Courses
Courses numbered below 100 are nondegree
applicable but may be used for a Certificate
of Achievement when listed as a major
requirement. Basic skills courses under 100
do not apply toward the 60 units required for
graduation, even though they may be listed
as part of a vocational program.


SKILLS CERTIFICATES
Skills certificates may be part of a “ladder”
of skills, beginning with job entry skills and
leading to a full Certificate of Achievement
or may constitute a skill set that enables
students to upgrade or advance in an
existing career. These programs are shorter
in duration and narrower in scope than the
Certificates of Achievement and consist of
fewer than 18 units.
