Yes. I was talking at length about this to my friend who works as an HR
recruiter for a major pharmaceutical company. Passing a test like this is
a sign that the prospective employee is willing to take on new challenges,
and expand their knowledge in their field. It doesn't hurt to have it on
your resume. But I agree that it may become a problem if certification
becomes the "expected", and raises questions if you don't have it.
