A Little Certificate Can Go A Long Way
Copyright 2006 Sherry Harris
The word certificate does not need any introduction. In this day
and age certificates mean a lot to everybody. When we graduate
from a university, institute or a career training school, we get
a certificate. A certificate is the proof of our successful
completion of an education or training program.
The institutes where we take admission issue a certificate after
the course. We get the certificate only when we pass the course.
The institute mentions the name of the candidate, commencing and
completion date of the course, percentage or the grade the
candidate obtains and also a signature of the principal.
Basically a certificate is nothing other than a declaration
letter. In the certificate the seal of the institute is also
usually embossed making it more impressive.
The certificate tells the success story in academics and
training programs. It is very influential and a must for a
person's career. It creates an immense positive impression on
the employer's mind. Completion of a certificate program can
serve as a signal to prospective employers that you are a person
with the drive and determination to excel.
These programs are open to non-degree seeking students. The
overall purpose of most certificate programs is to provide a
study of fundamental principles, with primary emphasis on
program of choice. Students who successfully complete there
certificate program will be qualified to apply for entry-level
positions. Prerequisites normally include basic skills
competencies in reading, writing, and mathematics.
But if you are like most people you will want to know what is
involved in the training program, which leads to the
certificate. Well, there are lots of training programs conducted
by many institutions to develop a person's skill and knowledge.
A training program could be on any topic such as business
training, team building training program, sales training,
programming training and many other topics. These are short-term
programs and are a great way to learn.
A training program is very good for people who do not have any
knowledge on the subject. Suppose a person would like to learn
graphic designing then he can join the graphic designing
training program, which would help him in learning the skills.
It does not matter whether you know something on the subject and
would like to learn more or if you do not have any knowledge on
the topic and would like to learn about the subject, as there
are training programs available for all.
There are different types of training programs such as, online
training, crash course training programs, on-the-job-training
programs, mentor training programs and others. These training
programs help in developing the person's skills. A training
program is very helpful and a person is highly motivated after
he completes the program. Training programs are designed for
people who do not have much knowledge on the subject. By
completing the training program a person has complete knowledge
of the subject and this increases his or her job prospects.
A training program is a very good way to learn and gain
knowledge. With the knowledge a person can get a job or open a
company. There are on the job training programs wherein you
learn the work by working under a senior person and you are paid
a stipend during the training period.
For any job the basic criteria of selecting a candidate is a
certificate showing good grades. Thus we apply for a job by
forwarding a copy of the certificate along with our well-written
resume. In some instances, a certificate may fulfill the
professional development required at some places of employment
to advance in position and salary.
Your professional status is also enhanced as you receive formal
recognition for your increased knowledge and skill in your field
of study. In short, certificates carry a lot of weight in our
society and are essential for our progress.
