    As a former hiring manager it is always good to see certificates on a resume. Having said that. When I see the certificate and bring someone in for the technical interview I expect that person to know what they are talking about. I cannot tell you how many times people have come in for interviews (with a certificate) and could not refactor code or explain in detail how inheritance works.

    Having said that. It is good for getting you in for an interview, but in the interview you better know your stuff.
