Questionable Credentials

I want to acquire unusual certificates. Something along the lines of Certificate of Ordination at Church of the Latter Day Dude and the amusing (and fake) Certificate of Virginity. What are the (preferably legally recognized) certificates out there?

Work in IT with an unrelated degree, what's next educational steps?

Long story short, I have a Gen Ed Bachelors (with about 4 unrelated minors. I like to learn new things) and have worked in IT moving my way up from a general Helpdesk tech into a Senior tech position over the last 4 years. I'm ready to learn and move forward into a new position and probably a new company. I'd like to increase my education though and I'm not quite sure what are reasonable options. Obviously a Masters is nice but frankly, I struggle whether it's worth the cost. I've already got plenty of student loans and I'm rather cash strapped so finances is an important consideration. A local community college offers Associates in Network Administration or Programming for 2 years or 1 year certificate programs in either. There's also the obvious certifications such as A+, etc. Do I really need a masters at this point or would I be better served with a combination of other options? Any suggestions are much appreciated. [more inside]

What certifications/courses can I take (Quantitative Research Oriented) - Senior Management in a Nonprofit

Hi, I'm at a senior-management position and currently head three departments including research, strategic relations and advocacy and digital initiatives at a very well known non-profit media media company for children. I'm wondering what kinds of certifications I can take to add to my professional qualifications/credentials. I'd like specific certification/course recommendations that have to do with large-scale quantitative research skills, project management, finance and such. Qualifications that can be pursued internationally are best - I'm based in India.
