Difference between certification and a certificate program
  • Certification has an experience and education component

  • Certification requires passing an exam

  • Certification requires recertification, which ensures that the practitioner stays current in the field through continuing education

  • Certification allows a practitioner to put letters after his or her name

ASIS board certifications are ANSI accredited, which ensures a high threshold of qualifications and rigor have been met.
