What kind of resources are available to assist me in my studies?
Many of the content areas addressed in the courses have excellent website references. The Mohawk College Learning Resource Centre also has an excellent collection of materials covering a variety of topics. The Library staff are happy to assist students searching both print-based and electronic material. Visit http://brain.mohawkcollege.ca for complete information on library services. Computer access is also available.
Who are the students in the program?
We have a variety of experiences among the students in the program. Course evaluations are always positive about the fact that the students have learned from each other. Many students are mature adults who are either working full- or part-time or not currently working. Most are looking to this certificate program to be retrained for new career opportunities.
What can I expect as a adult learner in this program?
The delivery of the courses focuses on Adult Centered Learning. Adult Centered Learning adheres to the principles of Adult Education in which student and instructor are partners on the learning journey. It is a process that is both collaborative and participatory. Group exercises, problem-solving, presentations and discussions, in addition to the traditional lecture format, allow the students to understand the concepts while bringing their own perspectives based on life and work experiences.
What is the cost of the certificate program?
Individual course costs are outlined in our current Continuing Education catalogue. You pay for each course in the semester you register.
