The English as a Second Language Certificate Program has been designed to provide non-native students with the necessary language skills and basic information needed to become successful self-supporting members of society. The program is particularly well suited for students who have basic job skills, but who lack the ability to work in their vocational fields because of the inability to communicate effectively in English.

Here are a few qualities that effective readers and writers have in common:
* Independent: You are self-motivated and work best on your own.
* Detail oriented: It’s important to have a sharp eye and check things twice.
* Patient: You understand that good work takes time, and you work well despite obstacles.
