At the same time, I think it is important to make a clear distinction between what I am, and what I am not. On my resume, you will find a college course in kinesiology; but I do not claim to be a kinesiologist. My knowledge in this area is, however, sufficient for the task at hand. In addition, my college degree was in mechanical engineering; but I am not a registered professional engineer. I left engineering (in favor of programming) just before I would have been eligible to take the professional engineering exam. I did take and pass the EIT (Engineer In Training) exam just prior to graduation from college.
