If you want to show that your knowledge, skills, and dedication to education go beyond the ordinary, it’s time to consider a certificate program. Earning a graduate-level certificate from Concordia University-Portland will set you apart — and put you ahead. Concordia offers a range of certificate programs designed for working professionals interested in deepening their understanding of a specific subject area, teaching discipline, or set of competencies.

Taught by experienced practitioners who stay current on the needs of today’s classrooms, schools, and communities, Concordia’s certificate programs will connect you, either on-campus or online, with peers equally committed to the success of their students — and their own success.

Our certificate programs for preliminary and professional administrative licensure are designed for educators with a current Oregon or Washington teaching license who desire to move into administrative positions. The practicum will allow candidates to develop and demonstrate leadership skills in professional contexts.

Our certificate programs with add-on endorsements are geared toward the professional advancement of teachers with an existing Oregon or Washington teaching license. Courses may be offered online or on campus depending on the program and will include a practicum which you may be able to complete in your own school.

Our non-licensure/non-endorsement certificate programs provide in-depth expertise and build theoretical and practical knowledge that can be immediately applied in your classroom, school, or program. All courses are offered completely online, do not include a practicum, and can be completed in less than eight months.
