Certificates take 1-2 semesters to complete. Associates degrees take 2 years to complete. Associates degrees are so much more impressive than a certificate. The Para-educator Certificate Program is designed to give an individual the training necessary to become an Instructional Assistant. This is not a state teaching license. Basically it is a teachers assistant. Some Para-educators programs can require up to 51 college credits. Thus, with a little more work, you can secure an Associates Degree, and most colleges will have a ladder program leading you from Para-educator certificate to an Associates in either Early Childhood Education (pre-k through fourth grade), or Education (Fourth grade through 12th grade). Still, if you plan on becoming a state licensed teacher, you must think about securing a Bachelors degree in education. This is not the only way to teach, for there are some alternate approaches, but if you have the opportunity to secure the Bachelors degree in teaching, this would b the better choice. That is in my opinion. Viper1

Both terms mean the same thing. Just as there's no difference between an "officer of the law" and a "law officer," there's no difference between a "birth certificate" and a "certificate of birth."
Basically more hours spent going to school. Bachelors being the most (4 yrs), then Associates (2 yrs.), and certificate can take anywhere from 6 mo. to 1 yr.
an associates you have two years of schooling and a bachelors you have four years

Companies, such as law firms, have a structure with partners and associates. The partners actually own a part of the company, and the associates work for them.
associates is a 2 year degree, and a bachelors is 4. some associates degrees can be continued on to a 4 year.
The difference is an associates degree is a step below a bachelors. A bachelor's degree is a degree that will stand out on its own as being relevant and primary where as an associates degree will only be used as a reference for "just in case" moments.
