Central Carolina Community College's Ecotourism Certificate program is the first of its kind in the North Carolina Community College System.
Nature-based tourism is the fastest-growing area in the tourism industry. People are seeking ways to enjoy, interact with, and learn about natural environments while having a minimal impact on them. Ecotourism provides ways and opportunities to do so.
Central Carolina's ecotourism program will equip students and business professionals with valuable tools for success. The courses are engaging and appealing for students wishing to explore the field, as well as for those planning to pursue a career in ecotourism.
