I am looking for suggestions for certifications and training courses that are fairly quick and/or easy. For example, the CPR certification can be done in (something like) 2 Saturdays, and First Aid in maybe 4-5 sessions. I would especially love anything that was at-home self-paced study and not requiring class time. If there was an exam (especially online) that's fine.
Given that I want something pretty quick and easy, of course I don't expect it to sound that impressive, but I don't want something totally worthless (diploma mill style). Can be anything that might enhance my value for some employers, can be pretty specialized. Cost is an issue somewhat.
Partly, I am just curious and would like to rack up some unusual little titles. Like, for example, I am unlikely to ever work in a post office, but I probably could just get a test prep book, study hard for a week, pay, and go take the postal worker exam?
I see there's one called "Office Proficiency Assessment & Certification", but that might be too silly to put on a resume -- I am also unsure how to weed out the good from the bad when it comes to some of the ones I find online.
It doesn't even necessarily have to lead to some official certification, if the training / course is something that I could mention to an employer or would come in handy in some way. I had another example, but it's slipped my mind.
Also they should have no degree prerequisite, or only require a bachelor's degree.
