Build the Skills to Get Job Ready

Whether you’re looking to get started in your career, or change your current one, our Professional Certificates through Coursera can help you gain the skills you need. Learn at your own pace, whenever and wherever it’s most convenient for you. 

Hands-On Projects

Apply your skills with hands-on projects that can help you build your portfolio. Note: You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to earn your certificate.

Earn a Career Credential

When you complete all the courses in one of our certificate programs, you'll earn a certificate to share with your professional network. You’ll also unlock access to career support resources to help you kickstart your new career.

Continue Your Success

Complementary courses and specializations

Once you complete a certificate and gain some experience using it, you can continue the momentum you’ve created to help get ahead! You may choose to pursue a related certificate that elevates your technical skills, or one focused on improving leadership and communication abilities. Many leadership positions require an academic degree.
