What are certificates
Certificates are documents that prove that you have completed a course or program of study. They can be issued by schools, universities, or employers.
In order to apply for a certificate, you will need to fill out an application and submit it to the issuing organization.
Some certificates can be obtained online, while others may require you to attend an in-person class or workshop.
How do I access my certificate

The process is different depending on whether you took the exams through a school or as a private candidate.
