Trade and occupational degrees and certificates
Maricopa Community Colleges' trade and occupational programs offer both an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) and a Certificate of Completion (CCL).
An AAS requires 60 or more credits, including both general education courses like math and English and courses designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for a specific occupation. An AAS may contain one or more certificates, and the certificates may be in a series that leads to an AAS.
A CCL requires a specific number of credits and may be part of an AAS program, or it may stand alone and not require general education courses.
