Faculty & Staff Certifications

Faculty and staff at Bakersfield College are taking it upon themselves to create the finest campus experience possible...and sometimes, that means going above and beyond for their school!

Here's how BC employees can become certified in several different college-wide initiatives aimed at improving the academic and cultural environment at Bakersfield College.
