An accreditation is proof of a partner company’s ability or competence to sell something or provide an acceptable quality of service. While certifications are awarded to an individual, accreditations are awarded to a partner company. A partner company is awarded an accreditation after satisfying several requirements: usually, one of the requirements is to have a pre-defined minimum number of employees with specific certifications on its payroll. Thus, in some ways, an accreditation is a collection of certifications and is the next step in the logical progression of course to exams to certifications.

Accreditations can be associated with products, product categories and solutions. They can also be related to other accreditations.
