New certificate programs at SFCC
Santa Fe Community College is offering several new certificates this fall.
Certificates and an associate in applied science are now offered in controlled environment agriculture, formerly the greenhouse management program. The new certificate and degree reflect the college’s expanded focus in food production, either indoors or within greenhouses, using soil-less techniques such as aquaponics and hydroponics.
The college also is offering a certificate in building science and construction technologies, and has a new infant and family studies certificate program that prepares individuals to work in the early childhood fields of home visiting, early intervention and infant-toddler education.
Finally, there are new offerings in web development, business administration, manufacturing engineering technologies and medical bill coding as well as the academic requirements to become a New Mexico-licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor.
