1.  What is the difference between a CEC/CEU course and a College/University Certificate program course?

Our CEC/CEU courses are for individuals who simply desire advanced education while working towards fulfilling their CEC/CEU requirements. The CEC/CEU courses are not instructor-led and has only a final exam to complete. A College/University certificate program course is approved by the same organizations, covers the same content, but is instructor led, has more in-depth assignments, and counts towards a College/University certificate of completion (which is sent out by the school, with the school's name on it). This is a great option for those who desire to fulfill their CEC requirements in addition to earning a certificate of completion from an accredited college/university (which helps in increasing one's credibility).
