Not really. It guarantees, most of the time, that someone has spent some
time reading a manual and knows some stuff by heart.

I know lots of "certified" people to which I'd hate to trust even the
administration of my mom's computer. Certification is simply not able to
guarantee a person is good enough on working with the system, just that
she is good enough on "recording" stuff on her brain.
