What is a certification?

A certification can show that a person is qualified to perform a job or task. It is usually issued by a professional organization and often requires passing an exam. Most certifications expire at some point and need to be renewed. They are usually renewed after restesting, continuing education, professional development, or a combination of the three.

Why should I earn a certification?

Some employers may require a certification. This is common in health care and human resources. Even if a certification is not required, earning one may give you an advantage when applying for a job or advancing in your career.

How is a certification different from a certificate program?

Certifications are offered by professional organizations. Certificate programs are generally offered by colleges or universities.
