What's the difference between a certificate and diploma program?
Both certificate and diploma programs are field-specific credentials that do not include general education courses required in a degree program. Each can typically be completed faster than an associate degree program.
Certificates are typically the least comprehensive programs, providing the minimum career-focused training necessary to perform a certain type of job.
Diploma programs tend to be more in-depth than certificates, and can include hands-on experience to best prepare you for a wider variety of jobs in the field you’re pursuing.
