STC offers multiple online courses where participants can earn a certificate of successful completion. These courses let you explore a subject in depth over the course of several weeks. In addition to the practical work skills that you will develop, participating in a certificate program provides you with a unique, live opportunity to learn directly from an instructor and to also exchange ideas and tools virtually with the other participants in the program.
- Participants must log on for the live sessions and complete required assignments to earn the certificate. If your schedule does not permit you to attend the live sessions in a course, reconsider registering; participation is key to success in any course. While scheduling conflicts may unexpectedly arise, you should plan to participate in each weekly session. If you are at all unclear about a course’s requirements, email us and we will get you in touch with the instructor so there is no confusion! We want you to completely understand the course expectations so that you get the most out of your investment.
- To participate in an online course, you must be able to access Adobe Connect, STC's online meeting space. You can test your Adobe Connect connection here. Adobe Connect is a standard web seminar tool (no separate download required) and all you need is a reliable Internet connection and phone line, or a computer with VoIP capabilities. In addition, some courses require the use of Moodle, STC's course management site. If you cannot access Adobe Connect and/or Moodle (as needed), then you will not be able to successfully complete an online course.
Note: Online registration closes two business days before the first class in each course. Cost is transferable to another online course but is not refundable.
