ISO 27001 Lead Auditor certification paths

Could you please help me to understand the difference between the ISO 27001 LA certificates according to the different paths you describe?

I think I don't understand the principal differences of:
1) ISO 27001 Lead Auditor certificate I obtain if I pass the appropriate exam provided by you and certified by Exemplar Global
2) Any other ISO 27001 Lead Auditor certificate (e.g. issued by PECB) that is provided only after going through all the steps described here: https://advisera.com/27001academy/knowledgebase/how-to-become-iso-27001-lead-auditor/
I'm concerned because I need the certificate to be able to conduct internal audits for the clients, but for now, I have only 1 year of professional experience (in ISMS) and PECB, for instance, provide Lead Auditor certificated only if you have at least 5 years of experience (including 2 years in ISMS).

I would greatly appreciate your support.

First is important to note that ISO 27001 does not require a Lead Auditor course for performing internal audits. An internal auditor course is enough for such a purpose.

Considering that, there are no significant differences between LA certificates issued by PECB or issued by Advisera/accredited by Exemplar Global. Such certificates are needed only for professional who wants to work as a certification auditor in a certification body, and in this case a particular certification body might have a preference for one or the other accreditation body.
