What is the difference between a certificate program and certification?

Practitioners must comply with their professional code of ethics as they represent the skills and knowledge they acquire through continuing education programs. 

  • certificate program is a series of training hours on a topic area or treatment method, designed to advance your skills and knowledge. If you meet all requirements, you will receive a certificate of completion and any applicable CEUs. However, completion does not represent that you have a "certification" or are "certified." 
  • A certification should only be offered by programs that sufficiently assess participants on both knowledge acquired and competent implementation of the skills taught. Ongoing clinical supervision may be required to complete a certification.
