for example
create function find_qualification_exists(@name varchar(65))

the @name is included with qualification. for example : 'Mark Froster MA, CRC,CCM,RN'.
i have the qualifications list. ('abc','xxx','ccm','rn','crc','xyz','lmn','opq')
Now i need to write a query to check whether/not the @name has at least one qualication.

Function should return 'yes' if qualification exists or 'no' if not.

Can you put the qualification in a temp table? then you can give this a try
declare @name varchar(50)
 

set @name = 'Mark Froster MA, CRC,CCM,RN'
 
 

declare @ttable (

quali varchar(10)

)
 
 

insert @ttable

value ('abc')

...
 
 

select top 1 case when patindex('%'+quali+'%', @name) = 0 then 'No'

	else 'Yes' end as result

from @ttable

order by 1 DESC
