An ultimate advice needed for an ultimate cert hunt.
Ok, So I just went through the past posts, not all of them as they were just making me exhausted lol, on this subreddit regarding certifications. After going through them. I have come to a conclusion. And that is. It's a mixed bag. Can be beneficial and well, won't really matter.
I am currently doing petroleum engineering. And yes, I did look up API certs but it seems them for professionals i.e. graduates working in O&G companies. Plus many certs related to O&G seems to be given after employment. However. I do believe that the certs listed down below would still help me out etiher way in job/internship hunt.
The certs that I have been able to found out so far, would be awesome if you can also list them down, are as follows:
CSWA - These solid works certs are so popular. Definitely gonna dig more into them.
CSWP - S
CSWA - S
CATIA - Seems very pricey
GD&T - Is it only related to civil dudes?
DFSS - Is this better than the belts?
SAE - Any help to me?
ASME - Is this better than OSHA?
OSHA - Is this better than ASME?
LEED - Is it better than 6 sigmas and OSHA and ASME cert? or a bit different than them?
LabVIEW - If good for me. When should I pursue this i.e. during undergraduate years or postgraduate?
Pro/Engineer Wildfire - Is this really needed for me?
CDL - (This one makes no sense but has such an important if one is doing petroleum engineering).
ANSYS - How useful it is?
6 SIGMA - White belt, Yellow belt, Green belt, Black belt. Which belt if the most useful?
EXCEL - The advance one i.e. doing stress/strain calculations on it and etcetera. Making models
Programming Language - Any online reliable site that is recognized by the organizations. Any specific programming language preferred i.e. Python, R, etcetera
Now ofc, there are other certs like EIT, PE, and PF if I'm not wrong. But I'm not sure if they are worldwide, as I'm doing my undergraduate in Malaysia.
I do know, many don't bother much, but I actually did some research regarding this matter on engineering students subreddit and certs were highly preferred there. So, now coming to the main point. Out of all these certs. If there was one, could be more then one, that you would pick out that would be worthy enough (will give at least a chance for interview), whether listed here or not, which cert would it be?
