How Much Do You Know About Certifications?

Common Certification Myths, Debunked

Myth 1: Certifications can be earned quickly.
Fact: Some certifications can be earned quickly, but others may take years of experience, training, and/or education. Certifications focus on different levels of skills, knowledge, and abilities, and are tailored for all occupational levels (i.e., entry-level, mid-level, and specialized occupations). Some certifications have prerequisites including education, work experience, other certifications, or a combination of those three-making it a longer process that the learner must go through before qualifying to take the certification exam. Others offer faster pathways to employment and can be earned in less time than a degree.
