Difference between Diploma, Certificate and Award...

Qualifications that are 12 credits or less are called, "Awards," those that are 13 to 36 credits are "Certificates" and any qualification that is 37 credits or more is called a "Diploma".  ATHE also has a number of Extended Diplomas worth 120 credits to cater for those learners who wish to study for a more extended period of time.
