What is the difference between CEWD and credit?

CEWD classes give you fast track options and hands on training students need to obtain skills in the work place. A college application, transcripts or college entrance exams are not required to enroll in  CEWD  programs.  Students  may  only  take  classes  specific  to  the  trade  you  are  registering  for.  Unlike  credit  classes,  CEWD  courses  are  non-transferrable  from  one  college  to  another.  Upon  completion  of  a  CEWD  program,  students  will  earn  a  Certificate  of  Completion  or  a  state  certification.  Credit  programs  are  geared  for  a  two  year  degree  or  transfer  of  credit  to  another  college or university.  More information about credit vs. non-credit can be found here.
