Well, that's a problem in ethics, not in the knowledge of accountancy. You can
be a great accountant but be unethical. And you can be a great technical
communicator and unethical. Or a terrible technical communicator and unethical
(Motel Boy, anyone?).

I don't know what certification would add, especially since no one can zero in
on *what* the certification would be about. Word? Framemaker? Baking brownies
for SMEs? The best certification I've found for myself is a nice group of
satisfied clients who feel they've received value from my work for them.
