What is ACE?
The Accelerated Certificate & Employment (ACE) program offers accelerated certificates with an occupational emphasis. Norco College trains residents for careers in high-demand occupations, such as Automated Systems Technician, Computer Numerical Control Programmer, and Electrician. These programs offer the education and training necessary to lead individuals directly to employment.
have taken our technical programs with high industry demand and created
accelerated schedules, allowing students to complete a 2 year certificate in
less than 7 months. These programs provide added emphasis on employability
skills, offering students several opportunities to prepare for job interviews
offered by industry partners. Students also have the opportunity to meet
employers through program coordinated presentations.
Associate of Science Degree programs require completion of at least 60 units of
credit, which normally will take 4 semesters. Certificate programs, many of
which lead to an Associate of Science degree, vary in the number of units
required. Most can be completed in 2 - 4 semesters. Each course required
for a certificate must be completed with a “C” grade or better. All can be
counted toward its related degree.
