I have a pretty long list of certifications. I use certifications as a way to confirm that I have learned a subject. I do not normally list all of my certifications on a signature line or even tell many people about them. My work does not require certifications so the ones I have gotten are for my own education.

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a constant learner. I have to be learning or I am not happy. I have a lot of interests so I have a wide variety of certifications. I have been asked about them in the past so I decided to list out the different certs and classes at one location. I do have the ones that relate to my career on my resume but I have more that do not relate to career.
