One disadvantage is that certification from a school matters somewhat. Certification from an entity that isn't known outside tech writer circles would matter much less.

The only disadvantage that I see is the several hundred dollars I would have to fork over that wouldn't go toward my mortgage or end up in my IRA.

The same is true of being a medical practitioner or an engineer. Still,
who would you rather employer a certified doctor/engineer over an
uncertified one?

The onus, clearly, is on the certifying body to get the training
certification right. In other industries, this usually encompasses a
basis of academic knowledge combined with proven on-the-job skills. That
said, I can't think of an industry with a certification program where it
disadvantages either the employer or the practionner.
