Jump Start Pathways Certifications Now Offered

Capitol offers our scholars many ways to go above and beyond the average, to set themselves a part from their peers and to progress along the pathway to success. One way we offer our scholars this is by making Advanced Placement (AP) and Dual Enrollment courses. Another way we do this is by offering Jump Start Pathways certifications. Some of these certifications are at the statewide basic level, which means scholars will be able to take these certifications anywhere in the state and be eligible to work roles that require the certification.

These certifications provide students with an array of knowledge needed to be workforce ready. The certifications that we currently offer are; MicroEnterprise, Microsoft Word, Adobe Associate, CompTIA and OSHA 10 general.

We offer our students the regional MicroEnterprise certification. This certification helps students master workplace behavior and communication skills. This certification is small business focused, students learn both the employee and entrepreneur sides of small business.

In today’s workplace students, regardless of field or industry, will need a strong grasp of basic technological functions. The Microsoft Word certification allows them a peak into systems they might need in the near future. Additionally, for our scholars interested in trade work post-secondary, we offer the OSHA 10 General. This certification will equip them with a wide knowledge of health and safety measures before reaching the floor after training. Both of these certifications are complementary.

We offer our scholars the Statewide-Basic certification in Adobe Associate. This allows our students with interest in graphic design to gain knowledge of an industry common tool. Another of our Statewide-Basic certifications includes the COMPTia, allowing our students with an interest in Information Technology a jump start on their career.
