What is a post-diploma certificate?
A post-diploma or post-baccalaureate certificate is a college-level credential acquired by individuals wishing to update their skills, learn a new technology, or learn the management side of their industry. This higher level of certification can help you achieve a career change, a promotion, or improve your knowledge of your industry in as little as eight months.
To be considered for a post-diploma certificate, in most cases, you need to have completed a minimum of a two-year academic program like a diploma. For a post-baccalaureate certificate, we usually require you to have a three- or four-year degree.
