Diplomas are what you get when you graduate from an accredited institution.

Tickets and certificates are the same thing. They are a piece of paper from a governmental authority indicating you are in compliance with their regulations and have been deemed competent to perform the tasks of a Power Engineer Technologist or Stationary Engineer 4th Class, 3rd Class, 2nd Class, or 1st Class. In some states there are fewer regulator restrictions.  In most states you will require certification or a diploma as a Stationary Engineer.  In some states you may not need a diploma or certificate.  However, any one who does have a diploma has a marked advantage over those that don't. Those with a diploma are often chosen over those that have many years of experience.

In Canada you will require a certificate to be eligible to work as a Power Engineer Technologist or Stationary Engineer anywhere in the country.  Depending on your situation, you may write exams for your diploma and certificate within days of each other so you don't have to re-study for your certification exam again months down the road. That's the smart way. Try your best to line it up that way. You are examined on the same material in both so, it makes sense to do it that way. Taking the S.A.I.T. course material and writing their exams counts as steam time (or apprenticeship time) towards different levels of certification and in some cases allows you to write off your 4th and 3rd Class certificates immediately upon completion of your S.A.I.T. courses.  Contact your local technical institute or government labor department to get definitive answers to all your questions as to what is required by law in your jurisdiction before making any moves.
