Why don't you consider gardening for your neighbours? Or, anything else you enjoy and are good at which doesn't require certification.

A very important thing I've learnt (over my many years) is that one should never do anything they hate just for the money. And, equally important, that many employers that I might want to work for are as equally interested in experience and attitude than "paper".

I almost didn't graduate from high-school because I couldn't spell. And I never got an undergraduate degree from UVIc (two years completed) because industry lured me away.

Years later I was invited back to UVic to teach. And, separately, I often found that my employees who hadn't graduated from high-school were better producers than those who had PhDs.
