To put it simply: An accredited course gives you a recognised qualification while a non-accredited doesn’t. This doesn’t make one better, however. A non-accredited course will show your employers that you are serious and it shows that you have the skills. Non-accredited courses are also cheaper and you usually don’t need a matric certificate to register for them. Either one is a good choice. You just need to decide for yourself which one you want to do.
