Everybody likes appreciation (at least Human as far as my knowledge is concerned 🙂 ) and I think the Certification is an expression of appreciation.
I actually do not know how much value do certificates have but it gives a little pleasure once you achieve it. And if it is for the work you are actually doing and living it – it means a lot to you.
I got the certificate of my lifetime and I am Happy 🙂 it gives a good feeling.. I dont know how many days it lasts?
