What is the difference between an SEI Authorization and an SEI Certification?  

Certain SEI credentialing programs award an “authorization” to utilize the SEI’s intellectual property (courses, assessments, etc.) to provide a service to internal or external customers. SEI Authorizations have specifically tailored entry and on-going qualification requirements that contain certain–but not all–elements of an SEI Certification. SEI-Authorized individuals require SEI Partner sponsorship to participate in the program. Applicants will need to complete initial training to qualify and ongoing education to continue to practice.
