ETEC Program Outcomes

Career and Technical Certificates

BRCC’s Entertainment Technologies program now offers three fast-track Career and Technical Certificates (CTC) for those seeking to refresh and reboot their careers with coursework in the latest digital media technologies.

These credentials are perfect for marketing and public relations professionals who would like to enhance their skills sets with expertise in web development and/or digital media content creation. Similarly, these new CTCs can provide small business owners with knowledge fundamental to the production of professional-quality web pages and audiovisual content essential to effectively marketing products online. Even experienced digital content creators benefit from CTC coursework as they refine their skills while engaging with a group of like-minded peers.

The CTCs also prepare BRCC students to enter so-called “new collar” jobs—those that do not require traditional college degrees and stress specialized, skills-based training.
