IMO, a certificate (as opposed to "certification," which has already consumed enough bandwidth without starting another thread) can be an enhancement for someone with little or no OTJ experience and few references, but not much of one compared to having the experience and a good set of references. In the current economy it will not do much when one is in competition with more experienced candidates who have both, so I would think of it as an investment for better times.

As someone who does not have a degree in writing, english, etc, I am
interested in getting a technical writing certification to add to my
credentials. Thus far, my work and accumulating experience has been
sufficient, but I cannot help but think that having some form of
certification would definitely help put a bit more shine on my file.
