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.

During the interview, the prospective employer may pose a question about a scenario that may be problematic to see what your response would be to that situation and how you would manage it.
You are put under pressure to think then and there what it is that you would do in such a situation.
Before making a reply, think about exactly what it is that the employer is trying to find out and how that situation relates to the job that you are applying for.

The employer has read your resume. They want to hear you talk about your experience.
Even though the explanation on your resume is descriptive and understandable, when answering this question, you are best to concentrate on what the position your applying for is about and miss all the unnecessary extra information.
It would be unwise to respond by stating everything that is already mentioned on your resume. You want to concentrate mostly on the parts of your current job that relate to the position you are going for.
You don’t want the employer to become uninterested in you.
When talking about your responsibilities and what your job involves, make it interesting and expand on what you do and how the tasks you perform relate to the overall purpose of the position.
Show enthusiasm and interest in what you do. It’s best not to come across uninterested even if you really don’t like what you do for work. Your attitude to work no matter what kind of job it may be, can reflect on you as a person and as a potential employee.

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.
