It basically concentrates on certain profession or field of study which aim to give mastery. When I check the net to see the courses offered through certificate programs most schools offered not more than 10 courses. The reason for this is their aim to specialize on certain profession improvement.
Another thing I learned through my research that makes me smile is the beauty that even undergraduate can possibly get a certificate. So this opens opportunity to many students who aim to learn. Imagine the skills we learned from the certificate programs can be either immediately use in our current studies or apply them with our professions. The idea is very convenient and flexible which makes it ideal to enrol in a certificate programs.
