Well, but a Computer Science course, if done right (i.e., with theorems,
proofs and a solid background on theoretical foundations of Computer
Science) would be much more illuminating.
Getting a certification would be just like studying for another subject
(perhaps much easier than studying for some course---again, such courses
are done right, since much of Computer Science deals with problems that
are simple to state, yet utterly hard to solve).
And a graduate degree is even more mind-opening, I can assure you.
