Gainful Employment Information

Carl Sandburg College is committed to creating an educated workforce by offering occupational programs that lead to gainful employment. We meet with advisory boards consisting of local leaders as well as industry professionals to make informed decisions in the development of new offerings as well as improving existing programs.


Graduates from Sandburg’s certificate programs can be assured that they are learning current industry standards and practices in state-of-the-art labs using the latest equipment that leads to gainful employment.


We invite you to explore the many occupational offerings available at Sandburg and to learn the job outlook for specific occupational offerings, our completion rates and the financial costs associated with completion.


This information is available for our certificates on the Programs and Degrees webpage. Select the certificate, then under Program Information on the left, choose Gainful Employment.
