I believe that certification is valuable when the certified will serve the
general public who, without the certification, would have no way of knowing
whether a professional widgit-maker or whatever was competent. I doubt its
value when the widgit-maker will normally be employed by someone who is
capable of deciding whether he/her/it* is capable of doing the job he/she/it
is seeking.

Thus I consider that physicians need some sort of international approval,
while computer programmers don't. Note: I am strongly opposed to
state/national/provincial certifications and believe that they should be
replaced as soon as possible by international standards and certificates.
