“A document attesting to the fact that a person has completed an educational course, issued either by an institution not authorized to grant diplomas, or to a student not qualifying for a diploma.” Dictionary.
In the Australian Qualifications Framework there is four kinds of certificate level courses, all inclusive of undergraduate studies. Certificate level courses are a year or less in terms of study duration. They can be completed at a university, Technical College (TAFE), private educational institution, private company, etc. All these certificates, unless stated, are either accredited by the Australian government or an accreditation body (such the ICOES Advisory Board).
