Is it okay to just take the course, but not receive the designation?

 

Yes, that's fine. Since there are post-course requirements for the designation, you would not be required to complete those. But since the monetary course investment is the same with or without the designation, you might want to hold off making a decision until you complete the course. You have one calendar year from course enrollment date to designation requirements.
