Health Care-Related Programs of Study in Vermont

Certificate Programs / Short-Term Training

Vermont Technical Centers (Mainly Certifications)
Vermont Technical Centers are designed to provide students with knowledge and skills to further their education. The schools prepare students for college or other training programs, and many students aiming for a job in the health career fields find them useful. Many provide college credit through either Community College of Vermont (CCV) or Vermont Technical College (VTC) as well as the chance to explore the work environment. You can attend starting in your junior year or even after high school graduation.
