Certification is essentially the process of publicly attesting that a specified quality or standard has been achieved or exceeded. Professional certification uses a formal process to identify and acknowledge individuals who have met a recognized standard. Usually this standard includes education, experience, and an exam of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to perform the job. Professional certification is a voluntary process by which a non-governmental
Professional organization grants recognition to an individual who has met certain qualifications. Licensing is a non-voluntary process by which an agency of government regulates a profession. It grants permission to an individual to engage in an occupation if it finds that the applicant has attained the degree of competency required to ensure the public health, safety, and welfare will be reasonably protected.
