A new way of learning online

San Diego Continuing Education (SDCE) is building a new fully online educational program to provide adult learners with a fast, free, flexible job training and extensive career placement services.

ICOM Academy (Interactive Competency-based Online Microcredentialing Academy) will launch in fall 2020 with five career education options in Small Business Entrepreneurship and Information Technology.

Fast

Programs are intensive and short-term. Most can be completed in 5-10 months.

Free

Career training programs are industry recognized and state approved. Open Education Resources will be prioritized for classes, which means Zero Textbook Costs for students.

Fully Online

Short-term certificate programs are fully online. Dynamic synchronous instruction makes these programs unique from other programs that provide little instructor interaction and peer-to-peer collaboration. Plus, robust student success services will be provided virtually.

Flexible

flexible

Learn on your own time and in your own space. Every online class includes self-paced activities as well as scheduled faculty-led instruction.

ICOM Academy Programs will be available beginning in fall 2020.
