TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
With such strong technical qualifications, I don't think certification is
necessary. There's a big need for writers who read code.
Take a writing course or two at a local community college, and maybe a web
design course. On your resume point out that you are currently enrolled in
these classes - it's impressive to see people continuing their education.
IMO, certification is (maybe) more valuable for people with weak technical
credentials, a problem you don't have. Go ahead and take the job-hunting

Tech writing. It's not ALL fast cars and Hollywood parties. But most of
the time it is. Really.
