Taking On-Line Courses from CSUDH

Courses offered via the web from CSUDH cover the same curriculum as those offered at local industry sites. In order to participate, you need an e-mail account and access to the World Wide Web. If you are taking an Internet class, you’ll automatically be set up in Blackboard. Blackboard is the software package used to administer the class. You can also send an email to jlhall@npgcable.com for Blackboard instructions if you do not receive them by email.

If you’re planning to take this program utilizing only your company’s Internet access (we allow two electronic addresses per student) make sure you can readily reach us and that our email readily reaches you. If you have problems (usually because of "fire walls") you should contact your company’s system coordinator. You may want to consider accessing the Internet either from home, a local library or school or in some other way until these problems can be resolved. We have little to no difficulty with most systems but we feel it best if problems are encountered and resolved BEFORE you begin the program.

Certificate Requirements

No application is required for entering the certificate program. You must complete five courses achieving an over-all grade point average of 2.5 or better. Prior to completing your last class, you should request a Certificate Application form from the CSUDH Extension office at eeprograms@csudh.edu or call (310) 243-3781.
