Hello there.
Couple of things:
1. This is not the correct sub-forum to post this. If you are new, take your time and research this forum.

2. Its completely your choice. Some programs ask for it, some don't mention it but don't disapprove if you have them, some specify the type of USCE they want and the duration. To help you decide, I'd suggest you to go through the IMG match sub-forum and check the credentials.

Good luck and Godspeed.
