Certificates are special programs that allow students to show some level of achievement in a much shorter amount of time than it would take to complete a typical degree. At the Fullerton College Printing Technologies Department, we offer several certificate programs that allow our students to get better jobs than they would have been able to by completing any individual course in Printing Technology.

When you complete the courses necessary to obtain a certificate, you show potential employers that you have comprehensive skill in the industry. The certificate you earn here will prove it.
