Question
Hi!  Please help me arrange my degree & certificates in my resume.  I am a certified medical coder.  I took two certificate programs in the past on medical coding:
1.  Certified Professional Coder Training Course, Healthcare Coding & Billing Institute, Makati, Philippines, 2013
2.  Medical Records Coding, Open Training & Education Network Western Sydney Institute, NSW, Australia, 2011

But prior to these, I obtained the following degrees:
1.  Doctor of Medicine, San Beda College, Manila, Philippines, 2007
2.  Bachelor of Science in Sociology, Colorado State University-Pueblo, CO, United States, 2003
3.  Bachelor in Business Administration, University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI, United States, 2000
     Earned 30 credit hours leading to BBA.

Should I list all these five under one category (i.e., Education)?  Or should I separate those two coding certificates to another category?

Hope you could help me.  Thanks!

Answer
Mark,

I would list them all under education in descending chronological order:

1. Bachelor in Business Administration, University of Wisconsin-Madison, WI, United States, 2000  Earned 30 credit hours leading to BBA.

2. Bachelor of Science in Sociology, Colorado State University-Pueblo, CO, United States, 2003

3. Doctor of Medicine, San Beda College, Manila, Philippines, 2007

4. Medical Records Coding, Open Training & Education Network Western Sydney Institute, NSW, Australia, 2011

5. Certified Professional Coder Training Course, Healthcare Coding & Billing Institute, Makati, Philippines, 2013

I hope that helps,

Jerry Leone
