  • Online Training and Management Certification Program

Beginning in the third quarter of 2021 students completing courses in the Online Education and Training Program will have a variety of options regarding the certifications they might seek to achieve. The first question you may ask yourself is: Why am I participating in this program and what would I like to achieve?

If you enter the program looking for expert training on a specific topic area but have no desire to achieve certification, you may choose to simply select a series of courses fitting your needs. For example, if you are looking for information or training regarding hiring practices and techniques, you may elect to take Operations courses. These courses will be an effective tool to expand your own knowledge and can later be applied towards certification if you decide to continue in the program at a later time.

If you are entering the program specifically to attain certification in one of the specialized areas, you have three options: Marketing and Sales, Food and Beverage, and Facility Maintenance. A certificate in one of these three specialty tracts would require the completion of all courses within the program as well as a final capstone project. 

If you choose to pursue the Leadership and Operations Management certification, you are required to complete the 53 available courses as well as all four capstone projects.

If you have completed courses in the old Online Education program through Anna Arundel Community College in 2019 or 2020 some your courses can be applied toward your program achievements. 

**Capstone Projects for Certification are an additional cost and are not covered under the online subscription services.
