Rapid Credentialing

Earn a certificate in months, not years!

Re-train for an in-demand career through Santa Fe College’s Rapid Credentialing Program.

Financial assistance is available.

The Rapid Credentialing program offers great opportunities for people who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and are interested in a short-term program to help maintain or enhance their skills for employment. The program was created to highlight jobs that would lead to middle or high wages.

The Rapid Credentialing grant will provide awards that will vary by program and may cover the cost of tuition, fees, books, laptop loans, childcare assistance, background checks, CPR training, testing fees, and certification exams.

Rapid Credentialing is proud to participate in the statewide Get There initiative for Career and Technical Education programs throughout the state of Florida.
