These are the trainings and qualifications that I have hard evidence of, but of course, one learns much through experience, and with over a quarter of a centry in professional practice, there is a wealth of experience to be gained! 
I also feel it is of worth to note that with the emergence of the "Super Conference" on line, that I attend at least one a quarter in detail, and its rare a week goes by without me dipping my toes into something!
