Now that you've had your say I can add my two cents. Apparently those certifications doesn't cover the fundamentals of English. Don't flatter yourself. You are telling a whole group of people who have degrees including a few people with pHd's that their degrees are worthless, yet it isn't. A degree teaches the fundamentals, a certificate doesn't the only thing a certificate certifies is that you can use a specific technology.That's why the are Microsoft certification , Oracle and much more international exams that can carry more then A degree and there are countries that recognises South African college degrees and example is Australia.
