As everyone here knows, I think TW certification is a silly idea.

However, I'm in favor of each tech writer getting as much training as
possible in anything that will improve the work s/he does. Usability
Studies isn't a high priority in *my* current job, so I wouldn't urge my
employer to pay for that one, but there are others that I have in mind
this year.

Which "agenda" did you mean?
