Invest in You!
Start earning your certificate today!
A digital badge is a unique and portable digital representation of your certificate that you can post on your online pages that promote you and your skills, such as LinkedIn or Facebook. Digital badging allows employers to grasp a deeper picture of your actual skills—just what they need to assist in their hiring.
SBCC offers a series of short courses that have been carefully selected to provide you the training you need to get a job, advance in your job and/or provide you skills you need to grow your business. SBCC career skills courses are packaged together to enable you to earn a certificate and digital badge – demonstrating you have mastered new skills. Prepare yourself with skills to get or keep the job you want and stay current with marketplace skills. Our programs advance career skills and life skills, and offer bridges to credit.
The tuition-free certificates and badges cover four key areas: business, design, technology, and career education. We collaborate with Santa Barbara community business leaders to determine what skills are needed to survive and compete in the marketplace. Whether you need brushing up on the art of negotiations, need to better understand branding or design basics, we have the coursework and certificates to meet that need.
