Yes, I find certifications entertaining and instructional but have no intrinsic value in business. Certify to gain knowledge. Do it to gain understanding. What can you DO to add value to your organization/value stream/team? Are you a continuous learner? Do you relentlessly improve? Have empathy for your peers, clients, family, et cetera? Have you accepted the value system and principles into your philosophy?
Paper accomplishes nothing without a pen and a thoughtful, moving hand.
I am proud of you for making it past ‘…as a follower of Jesus Christ…!’
