What are online certificate programs?
While online courses teach a very specific topic, an online certificate program is made up of online courses, which focus on an overall theme such as sustainability or cybersecurity. By completing all the necessary courses and passing an exam, students and professionals will earn a completion certificate as well as a digital badge to display on social media sites such as LinkedIn.
