Skills certificates at TMCC are designed to ensure that students completing all of the requirements are
prepared to take state, national or industry recognized certification or licensing examinations. These
programs provide training for entry level positions or career advancement instruction. As such, they
are shorter and narrower in focus than Certificate of Achievement or Associate Degree programs.
These programs are ideal for high school graduates, individuals exploring new career options or skills
Please note that while Skills Certificate programs at TMCC provide the training and instruction for
students, TMCC does not provide the certification nor does TMCC guarantee that a student will pass
the certification/licensing exam. Please contact the appropriate department for information on TMCC

In accordance with institutional policy and the U.S. Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), Truckee Meadows
Community College vigorously protects the privacy of student education records. The institution does not release private records
of individual students, such as grades and class schedules, without prior written consent of the student.
As permitted under federal law, the sole exception to the above practice is the release of “directory” information considered to
be public in nature and not generally deemed to be an invasion of privacy. At Truckee Meadows Community College the following
categories are defined as “directory” information: student name, address, telephone number, semesters of enrollment, full-time/
part-time status, degree(s) awarded, emphasis field(s) and date(s) of graduation.
Students have the right to request non-disclosure of directory information. If they do not restrict release of this information, it is
probable that the information will be released and disclosed. Truckee Meadows Community College uses directory information for
non-commercial, educational purposes, such as to mail notices to students about changes in policies, services or opportunities.
Directory information may also be provided by commercial purposes to businesses affiliated with the institution, honor societies,
the alumni association and foundation, or other individuals for purposes that may be beneficial to students. The institution
exercises discretion in responding to requests for directory information and may or may not provide such information when
requested, depending on the intended purpose of the request. The institution does not sell or rent student information for a fee.
It is important to consider carefully the potential consequences of restricting the release of directory information. If a student
restricts release for non-commercial educational purposes, the institution will be unable to place the student’s name in
publications such as honors and graduation programs; to confirm graduation and dates of attendance to potential employers; to
verify enrollment with organizations such as insurance companies; or to send notifications about specialized scholarships without
the express written authorization of the student.
If, after due consideration, you wish to restrict the release of directory information, complete this form and submit it to the office
of admissions and records. This directive will apply permanently to your record until you choose to reverse it by submitting a
