I've been off line for a day, so this response may be redundant, but
certifying technical communicators would be a monumental task. We perform
a broad range of tasks using different programs and in a multitude of
disciplines and industries. It might be helpful, however, to actually
define the term into categories, something like engineers are defined as
ME, ChE, EE, etc. so that we could begin to think about certification in
smaller categories.

Okay, that's enough. Work to be done. Have a nice day.
