Yes. The certificate issued after the program is exactly the same as the one you would receive after an in-class course. The Certificate doesn’t mention if you followed an online or in-class course.

There are no conditional pre-requisites for this certification program. It is however advised to have good working knowledge of at least one Agile framework, and if you have working experience in an agile environment, that would be a plus. 

No. The course is a knowledge based certification program. This means that the course is designed to cover all the learning objectives required by ICAgile.
