Training on Resume? [#permalink] New post 28 Jan 2013, 22:42
Should I list it? Only list some?

I have my resume complete except for this spot. I have about 5 lines available at the bottom of my resume including a blank line and a line for a Training heading.

The problem is in the last 3 years I have had 7 training classes, all different, representing about 9 weeks of training. I am not sure if I should just scrap it all, go onto the second page (what appears to be a big no no), or just list a few classes?

Or reduce font somewhere? Not really wanting to do it though. I am using Verdana 10 (approx size of Times 12)

I would summarize it somehow to convey a general idea, but don't go deep into much details. If these trainings do not help you to deliver some message, maybe I would even think on completely excluding them. I mean, it's important if it shows your passion for learning, for example, but don't overdo it.

I think one or two lines will be enough.
