Certificate on Aging and Advanced Certificate on Aging
Do you currently work with the aging population either professionally or as a family caregiver? Are you looking to advance your career with additional credentials? Are you considering a profession working with seniors? Whether you are an experienced professional, just starting out in the field, or caring for a family member, our program has something for you.
Built upon the solid tradition of excellence, Johns Hopkins University offers a Certificate on Aging and now an Advanced Certificate on Aging. The non-credit certificate is designed for those who work with aging adults and their families — clergy, financial planners, lawyers, nurses, social workers, volunteers, and work/life planners. The interdisciplinary program draws upon the University’s rich resources and offers students from a variety of disciplines the opportunity to broaden their professional training.
The Certificate on Aging Program is administered by the Johns Hopkins Odyssey Program, with the assistance of an interdisciplinary Advisory Board. Interested persons should contact the Odyssey Program at 410-516-7428 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on the program, courses and matriculation.
