If you’re at a career crossroads and feel like you are stuck, there may be a solution that will help you to get ahead in your company or help you to transition to a new one. Professional certifications! Certifications allow individuals to gain industry knowledge, work credentials and practical experience, without the long-term commitment and hefty expense of a college degree program.

Through our EduConnect program, JEVS Human Services is now partnering with Clarion University to offer in a wide range of self-paced, online certificate courses in a variety of in-demand career fields. Certifications provide a lot of benefits to working adults:

  • Improved résumé
  • Boost employability
  • Access to a larger variety of professions and job positions
  • Gain a higher salary
  • Upskill, and unlock new skills

 A Short-term Solution for Long-term Advancement

The advantage of enrolling in the certificate programs offered through JEVS EduConnect is that the student will have a success coach. The coach assists each student through the program, helping them to set goals and manage their workload, as a self-paced program can often be challenging when other life responsibilities—home, work, family—take priority. The coach is there as a “safety net” to get the student back on track.

How does the certificate offering work through JEVS EduConnect? Here are the details:

  • Who: JEVS EduConnect and Clarion University (Accrediting body)
  • What: The online certification courses are followed with an in-person externship with an employer that prepares the student to enter the field of certification. Each course varies in length, but the average time to finish is 2-6 months.
  • Where: The course catalog can be found here: https://jevs.edu2.com. Once a student registers, the student will log in through an online learning portal.
  • When: The self-paced model means that students can complete course requirements on a flexible schedule that meets their needs— they can log in early morning, late night—it is up to the student!
  • Why: EduConnect added these certification courses to fill two specific needs in the community:
      1. Increase the amount and diversity of certification offerings. Instead of just having Pharmacy Technician training, EduConnect’s reach spans from healthcare to business to IT to professional development and more!
      2. Provide access to shorter term certification programs that can offer students credentials that will lead to a job or promotion more quickly.
