I don't think you need to change your career because of a certification
requirement that you need a college degree. I think if that if a college degree
were needed for any certification, you should go out and get the degree.
Sometimes there is just no way around that type of requirement. Further, in
terms of marketability, what harm would getting a degree cause?

So far, I've not seen anyone say that you *have* to have a degree to
get certified. I think that there might well be an "in lieu of" loophole
that would let people such as yourself pass through (or over, or whatever :-)

This whole discussion is also about something that will not likely
occur for at least 3y, and probably won't achieve any major status
for another 5-10y beyond that.
(Yes, I'm guessing...anybody want to start a betting pool?) <grin>
