For 10 years, Bellevue College Continuing Education has been successfully training students in the programming skills that are demanded most in the workplace. The C# Programming Certificate Program was designed and is taught by professionals who currently work in the field and requires 185 course hours to complete. Because the program emphasizes learning by doing, about 30% of class time is typically devoted to exercises.
See an overview table of required courses in the program for more details. Courses may be taken individually or as part of the full certificate program.
The program combines four levels of skill building in C# programming with instruction in using C# to access data and using algorithms in .NET. In the final Capstone Course, students use these skills to complete a portfolio project they designed and developed with their career goals in mind.
Please Note: This certificate is required to obtain the C# Web Development Certificate.
The program’s small classes let instructors give students personal attention. Classes are taught during evenings and weekends to accommodate the schedules of working professionals. Our flexible program lets you start any quarter you like and finish at your own pace. You can take as few as one or two classes a week. Although the program can be completed in a year, you may take as long as three years to earn your certificate. And if you only need to take a key course or aren’t ready to complete an entire program, courses may be taken individually.
