What's the difference between ISTQB Advanced Test Analyst certification vs ISTQB Test automation engineer certification?

How can a manual tester with no automation testing project experience prepare for these exams? which one should prepare first?

thank you.

    if you have no experience with automated testing, then I am wondering why you would want to get certification for automated testing? what value do you expect from it? – Pieter A Jun 18 '18 at 11:53

The different syllabus sections relevant for each level can be found here:

For ISTQB, it helps to have hands-on experience beforehand, but you should manage by studying the course and taking a training.
