About the Gerontology Program
Gerontology is the study and practice of working with older adults. The Gerontology career field offers diverse and rewarding job opportunities. Santa Monica College’s noncredit, no-cost Gerontology Certificate program prepares you for entry-level jobs as a caregiver, companion, social and human services assistant, resident care provider, and more.
Our Gerontology Certificate program prepares you to meet the minimum requirements for the State of California Senior Caregiver Training. You will receive hands-on career training that supports continued studies in a degree program beyond SMC, career change or direct transition to an entry-level job in the gerontology field.
