Certification programs are similar to licensing programs but are voluntary. A license is essentially the state s certification that you are qualified to practice your profession. Certification programs are a voluntary way to show that you have met the knowledge, skills, and professional ethics requirements of the certifying agency. Obtaining a certification gives employers and clients the assurance that you know what you are doing. In addition, since certification programs are voluntary, they indicate that you have made a commitment to maintaining and improving your professional knowledge and skills.
