Clarification ─ Certificate Vs Certification
- A certificate course provides training on specialized topics for which students can receive a Certificate of Completion after successfully completing the course and passing an assessment. These courses may help prepare for certification, but do not provide a credential and should not to be confused with certification.
- Professional certification is the process by which a non-governmental entity, such as one's membership organization, grants a time-limited recognition and use of a credential to an individual after verifying that he or she has met a set of predetermined and standardized criteria.
