    Hahaha yes of course It's just, I don't have any quantitative evidence of the fact that I can use those things. I just worry that an employer will look at it and say "Well.. where's your proof?" like I can with my GCSE / A Level / Degree grades. All I've really written in my CV is this:
    Those things are all completely standard now, even typing at 90wpm (on a computer keyboard that's not even slightly impressive any more - try doing it on a typewriter).

    Why do you need to prove you can use a computer? As a member of your/our generation, you are expected to be able to use one. Saying you're able to use Office and you have some certification nobody's heard of is going to give the impression that you don't know what you're doing but want to look like you do.
