BCT Certificates

Pellissippi State offers high-quality, short-term training in the form of certificates. Individual curricula are designed for working students who wish to upgrade their skills or gain additional certification in a particular area.

An individual wishing to pursue a certificate who is not already a Pellissippi State student must apply for admission to the College. To apply for admission, visit www.pstcc.edu/admissions. On the admission application, choose "Certificate" as the application type and indicate the certificate in which you are interested. Students working on a certificate in conjunction with a Pellissippi State degree program must meet admission requirements for the degree program. The placement test and/or learning support courses are not required of students working only on a certificate. All courses for a certificate must be taken for credit.
