Part 1: What is Certificate?

A certificate is a signed document used to signify a person's qualifications and status, object, or location, amongst other things. Certificates are widely used in various fields and industries. For example, they are used by educational institutions to certify that a person has passed all of the necessary qualifications needed to complete a course. In computer science, a digital certificate is used to verify that the software you are using is legitimate.

Having certificates will enhance an individual's skill set and credibility. It demonstrates to others the skills and knowledge you have, which can be beneficial to an individual personally and professionally. Additionally, they can serve as an incentive for individuals to continue pursuing new skills and knowledge, becoming more well-rounded in the long-run.
