Survival Spanish: Culture and Language for Healthcare Professionals

Learn more than just words!

Rather than focus on building complete fluency, our Spanish classes provide a foundation in culture and industry-specific vocabulary for the busy professional. Students explore the demographics, history, gender dynamics, and other important aspects of Latino culture to better understand the unique challenges and experience of the population. Basic phrases and vocabulary are practiced to facilitate conversations between teachers, students, and parents or clinicians and their patients.

Autism, Added Authorization/Certificate

Did you know that autism has grown 600% since 1991?

We at Brandman University know that California’s teachers weren’t trained to manage the epidemic. We have sought to meet that need by launching one of California’s first state-approved Autism Authorization programs.

Our 4 course, 12 unit program provides either a CTC-designated authorization to serve learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders or a Certificate of Completion. Since Brandman classes are after hours and online, teachers can learn new skills and stay where they're needed: in the classroom.
