Certificate Programs

In addition to the traditional community college associate degree programs, the Detroit Promise partners with community colleges to offer shorter-term skilled certification tracks which take between 6 and 18 months to complete. These training programs enhance the skills and abilities of students looking to jump-start their journey into skilled employment.

Certificate programs allow you to explore some of the industry’s most in-demand pathways through hands-on learning and professional mentorship. It is the perfect time to consider your options for certifications in automotive, construction, health care, hospitality, IT, and manufacturing.

All participating community colleges have Pell-eligible certificate programs that are covered by the Detroit Promise scholarship. Visit our community college page for eligibility requirements.
