Whether you take the 10-week online course, or enroll in a week-long, intensive bootcamp, the CC Certificate provides an in depth study of Creative Commons licenses—helping you become an expert in open licensing and the Commons.
Our course options and price structure allow us to cover operational costs, update the content annually, and share learning with the widest audience possible. We will invest in new Certificate types (e.g., GLAM), translate the Certificates into multiple languages, and offer limited scholarships to participants within the CC Global Network who need support.
