Any plus or knowledge that you add to yourself and your professional profile it's very helpful, not just for the content but also cause it reflect your willing and commitment to keep learning and preparing.

Any amount of new learning will be beneficial, it would just matter how you add it to your resume. Employers love to see certifications, this tells them you know your stuff. Only include the certificates that are pertinent to the job, if it has nothing to do specifically with the job, don't distract by including it.

Thank you very much for the information. Melissa A.
