It is up to you if you want to bring a folio of certificates that you have completed over the course of your career.
Generally speaking though, it would be wise to include these certificates in your resume for an employer to refer to, instead than handing them a folio for them to sift through – which most likely will be brief.
One benefit to just listing them down is your CV is that it makes it easier for the interviewer to see all the certificates you have completed in one snapshot – the certificate name, year and issuer.

The employer may be curious as to what your career goals are. Are you career driven? Or are you contempt with your current role? Or is there something holding you back from moving further in your profession.
Avoid taking it personal.
At the end of the day, you don’t really need to justify as to why you haven’t gone further in your career. There may be a multitude of reasons for this.
Maybe quite simply you are not career minded, nor do you have great expectations of yourself in the future. Maybe you are contempt with your current state of employment and the level of workload that you have is just enough to cope with.
Or it may be that you genuinely have tried to move up into a higher paying position with more responsibility. Your reasons for this may be varied too. But you have not been successful in moving up because either you don’t have the skills to or you don’t have enough experience that will meet the essential requirements of the new position.
Its best to show a contempt attitude with your current level of employment by talking about all your accomplishments, what you have learnt, how good you are at your job or certain aspects of it, and that you are happy either way whether you move up or stay in your current role and just do really well, that is, perfect your role.

For most of us, securing a job is a 3 step process. This includes first applying for the job by submitting your resume and cover letter as well as any other supporting documentation, then being called in for an interview and if successful, accepting or rejecting the offer followed by negotiation. But the most important part really is the step of being interviewed. It can make or break our chances of securing the job no matter how good our application is or our potential as a employee with the company.
Being interviewed and handling the interview well is almost like an art. We need to present well, speak well and get along with the interviewer/s. Most interviews consist of one person or a panel of people, asking a series of question both behavioral, job specific and general in nature. No matter how good someone can be at their job, they may struggle with being interviewed. They may say the wrong thing or the right thing but in the wrong way, speak too short, too long or not show enough understanding or experience. First impressions count in an interview.
