We are committed to scheduling our courses in various modes of delivery – in-person, online and a mix of the two – to meet students' degree, diploma, career and other needs. With hybrid courses, the majority of the course is taught in an online format. Our faculty are very proficient in online teaching, with more than 90% having already earned EPIC certification, which is Wake Tech's online course certification program for college faculty.
Wake Tech academic programs (credit and non-credit) that are designed to lead to professional licenses are tied to North Carolina or national certifications. If you intend to pursue professional licenses outside North Carolina once you have completed your academic program at Wake Tech, please refer to the Professional Licensure section of the college's distance education authorization page for additional information.
