What would be the best way/several options to track 3 different types of certifications for a large group of employees on SharePoint?

Further, it would be handy if the Certification Tracking Site would issue alerts when certs are set to expire, provide you with profiles on individual employees containing additional information beyond what certifications they hold, and whatever other cool features that I'm not thinking up that someone with experience making a site like this may be able to recommend.

You can easily put those in a list and use a lookup list for the certifications.
List
Person - Certification - Achievement Date

Lookup List
Certification Name - Expiration Time

Then you will need a custom timer job that runs each week (for instance) that checks the certifications.

Any aditional features of a "certification site" that you've seen in the past?
