Credentials give a summary of a person's education and qualifications. Credentials include the highest degree you have earned, professional designations and certifications you have acquired. People who work in corporate, health or IT fields often place their credentials in the signature line of their emails to ensure readers know exactly who is sending the email and can trust the authority of the sender. The credential listing should only take up one line in your email signature.
