Program Details

The Education programs at Rio Salado are designed to be incremental and sequential – one level is incorporated into the next level. Faculty assist students to move from one educational level to the next without loss of credit.

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Adolescent Development is designed to prepare individuals to enter the family life education, human development, or child and family organizations field at the paraprofessional level. Students at a paraprofessional level may seek employment opportunities in adoption and foster care, crisis intervention programs, group homes and halfway houses, social service agencies (both private and State/local government), agencies for individuals with disabilities, community mental health clinics, psychiatric facilities, shelters and other child and family community-based organizations.

The total amount of credits required for this certificate is 19. Students must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses within the program.
