My biggest argument against John and other advocates of certification is
that I doubt it would carry much weight. Telling somebody you're
"TW-certified" or "STC-certified" or whatever is likely to be meaningless
to the person you're telling.
It might be argued that professional certification would raise the profile of the field. I've seen the professional association for accountants conduct a campaign to promote both that profession and certification. Perhaps tech writers would do the same.
