My point was not that you would get new work that you would not
otherwise get.  I was saying that as a hiring manager (a position I do
not currently hold) I would want some indication that skills were
up-to-date if my shop was using ILE functionality.  I would be willing
to accept certification as an indication of some familiarity.  It's not
the only one, and it may not be the best, but it is an indication that
someone's skills are reasonably current.

I have worked with programmers who do maintenance and add-on work with
JD Edwards World software.  They are skilled, they are talented, and
they have no exposure to ILE programming because of the code base on
which they work.
