  • All courses applied to a certificate program must be taken from Georgia Tech.
  • This certificate does not require an application.
How it works

Your path to achievement is easy! Most certificate courses are offered in classroom locations around the U.S. You can also inquire about training at your location.

Cost

  • Course load determines the cost of a certificate program.
  • Calculate your total by identifying the courses needed and tallying individual course fees. Some programs offer discounts for course bundling.

Registration

  • Select a certificate program, review the requirements, and determine your timeline for completion.
  • Add courses to your shopping cart for purchase as you are ready to take them, or as a bundle if desired.
  • Proceed to checkout to complete your registration. We accept multiple forms of payment including credit card, purchase order, a private loan (upon request), and VA benefits for certain programs.

Completion

  • Certificates must be completed within six years.
  • After successful completion of most individual courses, a Certificate of Course Completion will be sent.
  • After successful completion of all required courses, request a transcript and program certificate audit.
  • Upon verification, GTPE will email your transcript and mail your Certificate of Program Completion. Some programs host a certificate award ceremony during the final course.

Why Choose a Certificate?

Why Choose a Certificate?

Professional Certificates are ideal for developing new skills and building deep expertise in a specialized area to update your professional profile, advance your career, or broaden your knowledge base.

Certificates are an “anytime” credential
Start anytime - after graduation or later in your career - and gain deeper know-how in a specific area without the commitment to a degree.

Certificates demonstrate commitment
The dedication of time to earn a certificate demonstrates that you are committed to achieving a higher standard of professional knowledge in your industry.

Certificates provide immediate “ROE”
Georgia Tech learners master real-world skills and apply them to their career the day after completion.

Certificates stand out on your resume
A Georgia Tech credential carries the professional weight to give you a competitive edge.
