Certifications Overview

Certifications enable clients to create and manage internal and external certifications. Depending on the industry, applicable terms might also include compliance, designations, licenses, permits, and accreditations. The unique aspect of certifications, which is not accounted for in curricula, is that once the certification becomes valid based on a series of training items, renewal requirements may be necessary to maintain it.
