Getting trained or qualified in a specific business or trade is what a diploma usually deals with, other than the one that is awarded after completing high school or 12th grade. The knowledge is usually focused theoretically and practically on the chosen field of interest as the student is shown how to deal with issues or real life workplace problems that they may face outside. A diploma can be issued after a specific number of months or years depending on the course of study and how long it actually takes a person to complete it and meet its requirements.

Pursuing formal education, based mostly on academics in large institutions such as colleges and universities will ultimately get a person a degree from that organisation. This is a much more theoretical approach as compared to getting a diploma, but is more widely recognised around the world.
