Certificate of Proficiency (CP)
The NPC Certificate of Proficiency (CP) offers students highly focused skills training or re-training in selected occupational programs. By earning the CP you often can move toward testing and certification from national agencies in your field of choice. The certificate is a demonstration of learned skills in specific job areas when seeking employment in your career field.
Requirements for the Certificate of Proficiency vary by program and only those programs where the CP totals 32 or more credit hours are recognized at commencement. However, all earned Certificates of Proficiency are noted on the student's transcript.
For the individual courses required to earn your Certificate of Proficiency in a specific program, refer to the current NPC college catalog or contact an academic adviser.
