Arizona State University’s CareerCatalyst provides online learning opportunities for individuals in the workforce or entering the workforce.
Courses range from a variety of topics to add to or enhance your current skills. Digital badges are often awarded for individual course completion.
An ASU Certificate of Completion is a compilation of many skills or sequenced courses. Often referred to as a bundle of courses, this Certificate of Completion demonstrates a learner has mastered a concept that contained multiple skills. A Certificate of Completion can be obtained by taking more than one course on the same skill or completing a culmination of experiences. A certificate program is a series of courses that combine advanced knowledge on a given subject.
An ASU Professional Certificate is considered a large offering that spans over an extended period of time. This Professional Certificate represents a learner's mastery of a topic and is often displayed through an examination or project-based capstone. An ASU Professional Certificate demonstrates a learner’s competency and deep knowledge of the topic. An ASU Professional Certificate can be obtained by taking a program similar to the hours required for credit-bearing courses.
All CareerCatalyst courses are either created by ASU faculty or officially approved by ASU faculty.
