Certificate vs. Certification

A certificate program is a noncredit program, that is sponsored by educational institutions. Certificate programs have designated learning objectives, competencies and follow a  curriculum. Upon completion, a certificate is granted to the learner.

A certification typically involves taking an exam from a third-party professional group and must be renewed during distinct cycles.
