    In my 30 plus years as an ATC, LAT, CSCS, NASM Certifications are both to me ATC LAT was necessary to gain employment. CSCS; NASM showed people both inside and outside the profession I had gained additional knowledge yes but reached a higher standered and am certified. Taking courses sometimes gains same level if knowledge as being certified in some areas. In this case its a cheese certification only benefiting the person or group providing course. Not all certifications are created equal so be ware. They all helped me early on in my career opening up opportunities that I would not have had if not for the knowledge and letters behind my name. It also makes a difference in what work environment your in such as High school , college, professional, clinical if it makes a difference in pay or advancement.

So must be takecare of your self.

    Hi Mike,

    Sorry, but I have to disagree with your responses regarding certifications. One could say the same thing with respect to a college degree. Individuals could theoretically educate themselves and learn as much as or even more than a college graduate, but without the degree it means very little to a potential employer. A degree gives people more of an opportunity to get in the door.

    Of course the education is what’s most important, but the certification, just as a degree in any field, even yours, is evidence that at least you completed a course of study and a testimonial to ones discipline and dedication to ones chosen profession or career path, whatever that may be.

    And by the way, I enjoy your podcasts, but in this case, I just have a different view.

    Thanks Mike!
