Certificate of Training in Obesity Interventions for Adults - Certificate vs. Certification
A certificate program is an intensive training program with a component that assesses the participant. Upon completion of the program, participants receive a certificate attesting to the attainment of a new knowledge/skill set (e.g., Academy/CDR Certificate Program in Obesity Interventions in Adults). Unlike a certification program, participants do not receive a professional designation. Individuals completing a Certificate program receive CPEUs for training and assessment time regardless of whether they pass the post-course assessment and receive the certificate.
A process, often voluntary, by which individuals who have demonstrated the level of knowledge and skill required in the profession, occupation, role, or skill are identified to the public and other stakeholders.
