LinkedIn Officially Endorses SBCC Career Skills Institute
Career Skills Institute digital badges are a high-visibility program component: participants earn a digital badge upon completion of each certificate program, which may include from two to four courses taken during a single SBCC semester or over multiple semesters. Digital badges can be posted on online profiles such as LinkedIn, websites and resumes, to easily showcase competitive skills to employers.
“Endorsement from LinkedIn will help us tremendously to raise awareness of our programs
among employers, employees and job-seekers here in the Santa Barbara community,” said
Shelly Dixon, Director of the SBCC Career Skills Institute. “We are grateful for the
powerful resources we are able to offer in cooperation with Lynda.com, and we are
excited to see the impact of Career Skills Institute digital badges as our participants
begin to deploy them on their LinkedIn profiles.”
During its inaugural 2015-2016 academic year, SBCC Career Skills Institute served over 1,800 participants and 20 local employers. Registration is now open for Spring Semester classes, which start January 17. To register for classes and workshops online at www.sbcc.edu/csi or in person at the SBCC Wake Campus, 300 N. Turnpike Road. For more information, call 683-8282.
