Columbia College has created three new Skills Attainment Certificates
under the new grant. The following three are the newest certificates with the fourth, a larger Multimedia Technician certificate, being in progress.
The overall purpose of the Multimedia Technician certificate is to provide students with a breadth of knowledge in the multimedia field - ultimately, graduates will have a strong baseline knowledge of multimedia software, as well as a good understanding of various hardware technologies. This interconnection between the artist/graphic-producing side and the technologies/equipment-support side is intending to prepare students to meet the needs of potential employers.
