This probably doesn't help, but when I look for non-degree courses, they frequently use the word "certificate" in the title. If someone doesn't read your CV/resume closely, they might not appreciate the credential for what it is. I operate from the assumption that the person filtering my resume might have been selling fro-yo last month at the mall. For that reason, my CV/resume is VERY VERY clear. I have a section titled "degrees" and another titled "other education" so for me, the cert would fall in "other education" which is a friggin long section on my resume. I'd fear it being lost. I realize that probably means an additional course or two and an exit requirement, but for all the effort it takes to get a cert, if it were me, I'd finish it out and earn the degree.
