New Awards of Achievement by VCC Continuing Studies
VCC Continuing Studies is excited to introduce Awards of Achievement, a new recognition program designed to meet the rapidly changing needs of the marketplace. Each new Award of Achievement provides students with a specific skill set aimed at employment or business success. Most awards will be completed in a shorter time than a certificate or diploma.
