Education Assistant

  • Two-year, full-time certificate, OR
  • Three-year, part-time certificate

Everyone wants to learn, to understand, to be included. Some children, though, need help fitting into the classroom and developing the skills needed to succeed academically and socially.

In the Educational Assistant certificate program (EACP), we help you to help these kids. The EACP combines theory and practical experience to give students the skills needed to support individuals with exceptional needs in the public school system. The program includes courses on Supporting Children through Inclusive Education, Exceptional Individuals, and Understanding Youth at Risk.
