Invest in Your Professional Development
SBCC offers a series of short courses that have been carefully selected to provide you the training you need to get a job, advance in your job and/or provide you skills you need to grow your business. SBCC career skills courses are packaged together to enable you to earn a certificate and digital badge – demonstrating you have mastered new skills.
The tuition-free certificates and badges cover four key areas: business, design, technology, and career education. We collaborate with Santa Barbara community business leaders to determine what skills are needed to survive and compete in the marketplace. Whether you need brushing up on the art of negotiations, need to better understand branding or design basics, we have the coursework and certificates to meet that need.
