Of course, eventually, even a degree or a diploma or an advanced certificate course does not help you in the same way as actual hands-on experience!
When people come at you with their worst, you should come at them with your best (advice given to Selena Gomez by her mother, quoted in Time magazine.)
"Earning knowledge is by sharing it with ISC and we will rectify our mistakes."
certification course is provided to a student to get a job.and how the students are trying to learn it depends upon their behavior.
If a student have interest they try to learn so many things rather than only course and the teaching the bookies things they try to learn more and more practical based things which will help in real field.
So certification is most important tor recognize and to filter the best employee.
In that case we can not say that certification is useless.

As Vandana Mam already mention that she has learnt MS Office and its now helping in her job. Same way, Indians do certificate course to gain quick knowledge to any domain mainly for their job requirements. They don't have time to do a degree course due to many things. Rather this if somebody has interest in any particular area/field then he/she may surely go for degree courses to gain the full knowledge.
"Knowledge will give you power, but character respect."
In my opinion certificate courses give you elementary knowledge only. If you need good knowledge you have to do some specific courses by your own . You can get a job by a certificate course but you can not impress you boss by this one only.
Honesty is the best policy.
Certificate course alone may not be helpful. But a person with a degree wants to specialize in a particular subject and to be identified as different among a group of graduates, certificate courses are the best choice. For a computer graduate many well known companies like Microsoft, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Cisco etc.. are offering certificates for passing online exams. What more you need when you are certified as the best programmer by a world renowned company?

But I don't agree that one cannot get the basic when we apply for a certification course, as it totally depends on the candidate that how he tries to improve.
Don't get into a high level course until you are clear with the basics.

I am computer Engineering student. In my whole course none of the subjects is useful while i am working in company. These subjects gave me only theoretical knowledge.
TO gain Practical knowledge you must have to do any kind of certification course. If you want to become a master then you must have to do practice. Practice makes a man perfect.
One should not mug up certification exam paper just like theoretical subject.
You can pass the Certified course only when you have enough knowledge about subject. The best example of certified course is REDHAT. In REDHAT certified exams you have to do each and every question practically. You can perform a only when you have knowledge about subject
