No, you do not have to take a Basic Course to be eligible to take the corresponding Advanced Course. Your course selection depends upon your professional goals. You have the option to take an Advanced Course without taking a Basic Course.
If you take a Basic Course and later decide you want to take the corresponding Advanced Course, you only have to pay the difference in the registration fee as well as the exam fee. You must take the Advanced Course within 12-months of completing the Basic Course.
Upon completion of a Basic course you receive a Certificate of Completion, whereas upon completion of an Advanced Course and successfully passing the credential exam, you are awarded an embossed Certificate and the right to use the appropriate credential in your signature.
Yes, you can certainly pay for each component separately. However, paying for the Advanced Course and competency exam together ensures there will be no fee increase at a later time.
