I participated in an Explorers program with a local police department for three years. After each year, they give you this "Certificate of Achievement" stating your participation for the year that's signed by the post leaders. My thoughts:
This is extremely important and relevant to the job I'm applying for. The only other place where it could really "fit in" on their application is under the Miscellaneous section of Additional Information, which seems like a bit of a low-quality place where it might get overlooked.
However, you get this certificate just for participating for the entire year (approximately nine months). It doesn't technically show that you put in effort apart from attendance or that you are skillful in anything you've learned.
Would this type of certificate be important enough that it would qualify as something I can list there?
Note: This is an application, not a resume. This specific application allows you to attach a resume, but the listing states that it will not be considered.
