You Talk About Accredited and non-accredited Programmes. What’s the Difference and is one Better Than the Other?

The big difference between accredited and non-accredited courses is that an accredited course is a recognised qualification. Non-accredited courses might not give you a recognised qualification but you learn the same things you would learn in an accredited course. Accredited courses might give you a slightly better chance when you look for a job but non-accredited courses also have advantages. Non-accredited courses are cheaper, simpler to enrol in and employers will recognise your skills even if they don’t recognise your qualification.
