<<Maybe they would. Are rates low because most people in this field write
crap or do most people in this field write crap because the rates are low?>>

I don't think these things are correlated. Nor do I think certification
proves much. There are a lot of project managers with certification that
can't successfully close out a project. In fact, from www.redgate.com there
is a statistic that 53% of all projects do not come in on time. Another 17%
couldn't even track whether the project had come in on time or not. This is
despite the fact that project managers typically make better rates than
non-managers.

Certification hasn't improved for project management (and it seems to have
little to do with capability). I don't see the benefit for technical
communications or technical communicators.

I it's fine for those who want it, or for those who feel safer see a
certification on a resume. I just do not see a correlation between
certification, results or salary.
