Hofstra University Continuing Education

Earn a School Facilities Safety and Security Certificate

Safety and Security in the schools is important. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the percentages of public schools using various safety and security measures has increased over the years — security camera use alone rose from 19 percent (1999-2000) to 81 percent (2015-2016).

This is one of the reasons why Hofstra University Continuing Education offers a School Facilities Safety and Security Certificate Program in conjunction with the Nassau County Chapter of the New York State Association for Superintendents of School Buildings and Grounds — a program designed to provide professional development to school facilities leaders.

Employment in this industry is projected to grow about 8 percent from 2016 to 2026. Our program is also geared toward school staff interested in school facilities management careers, or those pursuing a better understanding of the field.

The certificate program can be accomplished within 12-months. Coursework focuses on the budgetary challenges and the complex rules and regulations faced by school district leaders.

Courses may be taken individually without participating in the certificate program.

School district leaders and industry professionals lead all classes, contributing their vast cumulative experience, knowledge, and expertise to this program. For more information, contact us at 516-463-7200, or ce-solutions@hofstra.edu.
