Subordinate certifications are any certifications that must be completed before the top-level certification can be considered complete. Examples of subordinate certifications are any groups of identities that you reassign, or any lower-level, subordinate, manager certifications. Lower-level manager certifications can be created when Manager Certifications are scheduled and might be required as part of that process.
Subordinate certifications are not displayed as part of the certification list and do not reflect as part of the completion status for this certification. When specified, subordinate certifications must be in a complete state before the top-level certification can be signed off on.
