Contrary to popular belief, a certificate and a certification are not the same. Every single class we off is eligible for a certificate. This certificate is basically documentation that students actually did attend the course and passed any oral or written competency test. Certificates are the results of an educational process and demonstrate knowledge of the content of the course at that time.
Certifications, however, go beyond the level of certificates. A certification is the result of an assessment process and demonstrates the application of skills and knowledge in real-life scenarios. In addition to oral or written testing covered in a certification process, practical skills must be completed successfully in order to obtain the certification.
