Ah! The pleasures of getting a medal in front of the whole school and the proud feeling that you get while boasting about it in front of your parents.
When you get a medal or a trophy, or even when you are just a runner up, you get a piece of paper “The Certificate of Achievement”. The certificate that you get when you clear competition is awarded to recognize that a benchmark has been achieved or that a specific task has been completed.
Do all the certificates of achievement mean the same thing? Does getting a certificate of recognition mean anything?
We will discuss it all along with the awesome Certificate Templates for the achievement certificates.
What Is A Certificate Of Achievement?
Recognition that is given by an institution or a company to a person on completion of a project, or on accomplishing a really successful task.
If the certificate of achievement is awarded after a certain course has been completed, then it must not be confused with a degree or diploma. It only indicates that the person has completed a course or program. Some institutions call these certificates as “Certificates of accomplishment” or “certificate of recognition”. But in almost every case, they all stand for the same thing.
Do all the certificates that are awarded for any achievement have the same value?
Not at all!!
Actually, the value of any certificate depends on the type of project/ course/ tasks/ competition and the institution that is providing them. Usually, the motive of the certificate is to act a small award that will provide an acknowledgment that a certain person has completed a program successfully. But you must not confuse it with a certificate of completion, it is an entirely different story.
