    I'd imagine what they want is just a summary of your skills. Write a couple of paragraphs explaining what your strong points are, maybe some examples of training and/or experience you have, and that sort of thing. Basically, something that goes a little further than just a bullet-list.

    Free Microsoft Training: Microsoft Learn
    Free PowerShell Resources: Top PowerShell Blogs
    Free DevOps/Azure Resources: Visual Studio Dev Essentials

    Let it never be said that I didn't do the very least I could do.

    I'm probably a bit late.

    But a skills summary is just a list of the technologies you've used and experienced in.

    eg

    windows xp
    sql 2003
    IIS

    Quite often recruiters are too lazy to look through your CV and just want to see what you have experience in.

    You could probably put in your level of understanding of these skills and any certs you have on this page as well.
