Certifications of Achievement

We get it. The job market is competitive and positioning yourself for a new opportunity is expensive and time-consuming. We have a less costly option. Certification of Achievement programs are non-degree, flexible, and streamlined to allow you to move through your learning pathway and save both money and time.

AUArts' Continuing Education Certifications of Achievement are available in Graphic DesignIllustration, Jewellery, and Visual Art.*
