What's the difference between a certificate, a module, and a membership?

Modules are single-topic units, while certificates are full courses comprising many modules. Memberships give you access to both these formats.

Certificates are structured, long-format courses designed to provide in-depth knowledge in a specific subject area. A certificate consists of 5 to 8 modules each and takes 18 to 24 hours of study time to complete.

Modules are standalone, more focused learning sessions lasting around 2 hours each. These modules allow you to deepen your expertise or explore new interests without having to commit to completing a full certificate, although you can always build on the modules you've completed to work towards a certificate if your membership plan covers it.

Memberships provide access to our modular library in the form of at least one certificate track and a certain number of modules, depending on the level of membership (standard or premium).
