Program Description The Early Childhood Education Department has the ECE Initial Certificate, available as a stackable certificate. This stackable certificate includes a 20 credit short certificate of specialization that combines the 12 credits of the ECE Initial Certificate and 8 credits of specialization in a selected topic. This applies toward the ECE State Certificate (47 credits), an ECE Intermediate Certificate (57 credits), an ECE ATA Degree (90 credits), and an ECE AAS-T Degree (90 credits).
