The so-called certificate is just a proof that you have studied, but it doesn’t represent your ability to solve problems. It means that when you encounter a problem, you have a more accurate understanding compared to someone who hasn’t studied it. Even without a certificate, if you have long-term experience in related work, your personal ability might still have a high value, like five nines.
