This is certainly true, but, a certificate shows that you followed some path
to its end. Certainly taking a bunch of highly relevant classes is far
better then what some schools require for their certificate. But sometimes
it is nice to list a certificate rather then a bunch of classes on your
resume (to some resume screeners that is, but not all).

I think that rather than going after some kind of certificate, just take
specific classes that can increase your marketability. I say that as a
writer who has done just that, and I say it as somebody that screens,
interviews, and hires people.

In the time it takes you to get a certificate in Web Design (for example),
you might be able to take a programming class, an HTML class, a tech
writing class, a networking class, etc.
