Featured course: Social Media Marketing

A self-paced, online professional development certificate delivered by faculty who are not only engaging instructors, but also daily practitioners of social media marketing in their own businesses. Using a combination of video instruction, text, worksheets and quizzes, these classes provide a solid foundation for developing a strategic social media marketing plan for any business. Successful completion conveys a non-credit certificate from JCC and a downloadable badge for your LinkedIn profile.
