* Fire Service Technology is a minimum of 32 units, and up to 35 units, depending on electives.

** Occupational Safety & Health, though a 15 to 16 unit certificate, is a 72 week or 4 semester program. Because of our scheduling pattern, we run one OSH course per semester, and there are 4 core courses which we cycle through.

*** Viticulture is a variable 34 to 39 unit Certificate. At best, it is 3 semesters plus one summer session where we offer a summer viticulture operations class, and it is only offered in the summers, so we need to add 6 weeks to our number, or 60 weeks total.
