Functional Resume
Education and Training

Use these guidelines when developing the education section of your chronological resume:

Education Example:

Bachelor of Science, Criminal Justice, expected 20XX
University of Maryland University College, Adelphi, MD

Certificate Example:

Certificate, Security Management, expected 20XX
University of Maryland University College, Adelphi, MD

Other Training or Professional Development Example:

(use a format similar to that of the education items)
Certificate or course name, date
School or training organization

 

TIPS

  • If you have more than one degree per school, consider listing the school first with the degrees "stacked" underneath
  • If including key or specialized courses, keep it to what is really special and relevant - assume the reader already knows what the basic curriculum entails; tell about things that are advanced or different
  • List course names only - no course numbers
Note: If you have an extensive number of trainings you might choose to create a separate section immediately following the education section or toward the end of the resume.
