Nashville State offers one-year technical certificates that are designed to equip students to enter the job market quickly. These career and technical programs emphasize basic technical knowledge that is reinforced through hands-on experience. Students are prepared for entry-level positions through classroom and laboratory learning.
Internships and Clinical Practicums
Many of the technical certificate programs require students to complete internships or clinical practicums. Students apply principles they learn in class to on-the-job situations. Students work in actual business, industry, and health arenas while receiving credit.
The certificate programs are designed so that students can apply all of the required courses toward Nashville State A.A.S. degrees. Consult your advisor about articulation options.
