Top Certificate Programs in Life Sciences

A certificate is a document that provides proof that a student has completed training for a certain skill or job. Receiving a certificate usually involves taking a series of courses and tests and typically takes about a year to complete.

What is a certificate in life sciences? Students who want to learn more about natural science and how it corresponds and impacts our world are suitable candidates for this type of certification. A course in biotechnology is one example of a potential path of study. It is designed to teach students the fundamentals of DNA construction and the production of proteins, vaccines, enzymes and metabolites. It also teaches students about contemporary techniques for separation of biomolecules. This is an intensive program for those with a biology background who want to know more about how to manipulate the genetics of cells and how to implement it in medicine, nutrition and the environment.

With a certificate in life sciences, students may go through a more focused, detailed learning program to enhance their skills in a specific field. With a soil management certificate, for example, students learn to classify soil, organize research materials, and how to communicate necessary to working on a team.

The cost of a certification on this subject varies. Part-time and full-time online courses may be available, as well as on-campus courses for a more hands-on experience.

Career paths vary for those who get a certificate in life sciences. It depends on the focus of the program. With the soil management certificate, students can become certified soil scientists who work to help with agricultural issues by studying and categorizing the soil in different regions. With a horticultural landscape certificate, students can manage plant nurseries or even go into landscape architecture.

Tuition costs vary for a certificate in life sciences. For those interested in knowing more about the certification programs available, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Last few days to enrol!

Agriculture and food regulation is no longer primarily the responsibility of states, but implies common rules, common principles and common regulators extended to the world scale. In addition, it is multidimensional, implying a balanced protection of several interests and values. These two aspects raise several problems of a legal, cultural and political nature.

Through a vertical comparison of different food safety regulatory systems students will study the main issues of food safety regulation and different strategies and approaches for analysing them. Students will learn about institutions and agreements such as the World Health Organization, Codex Alimentarius, International Organization for Standards, International Plant Protection Convention and the World Organization for Animal Health, so as to understand their role in international agri-food policy, especially food safety policy. This Specialisation also defines food safety law and regulation in the international legal space focusing on linkages to World Trade Organization (WTO) law.... [-]
