    November 13th. New article posted by Daniel Verkerke regarding Certification Diploma Mills

    Can money buy you honor, pride, respect and experience without putting in the time, sweat, work and dedication? It can be an honor to receive acknowledgement from your peers or superiors, but this honor can not substitute or replace knowledge, skill and experience. In today's quick fix fast food Society some people use a collection of certificates to hide behind. They use these certificates to hide their inadequacies so people will assume they have attained that level of knowledge, experience and skill. They will emphasize to everyone how much these certificates mean to them and how important it is to have them. The emphasis should be on the content of training, the mental development and physical skill of the instructors and students, not the paper.
