Certificate vs Certification

Earning a SU Certificate Program of Mastery  is a way for you to earn non-degree credits in a structured, discipline-specific way. A SU Certificate of Mastery prepares you to advance in your career, gain the extra knowledge needed to stay competitive and up-to-date in cybersecurity. Completion of a SU CyberSecurity Certificate Program of Mastery demonstrates evidence of specialized cybersecurity education achievement with hours of practicum preformance based skills validated by peers, not just an exam. Recognized by Security University, accredited by MSA- CESS and NSA- CNSS 4011, 4012, 4013A, 4015, 4016A (expiring 2018).

There are many fields that have professional certifications that may be recommended or required (teaching, project management, accounting). A cybersecurity certificate program of mastery does not lead to a professional certification. Yes, the courses you take in a certificate program could help you prepare to earn a professional field-specific certification, but earning a certificate is not the same as becoming certified. Its much more, it indicates completion of a course or series of courses with a particular focus.
