It is also a career option for someone interested in working as a photofinishing lab technician or in the photographic support industry. The certificate is useful for someone who uses photography as part of his or her profession, such as in the medical industry or law enforcement, but who needs additional photographic skills. All of the courses are hands-on and practical and are taught by experienced professionals.
Courses in each level (Foundation, Core and Advanced Track) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
