I've been in IT, programming in RPG for over 30 years from the IBM 360
Model 20 through the System/3, through the System/38, and now on the
System I(AS/400).
I've been a manager, director, etc. I have never taken a certification
test, and at this point in my career, I have no intentions too.  Tests
are all well and good, but some people do better on written tests, and
not so well in practical application.    
I think its up to the individual whether they think that it will be
worth their while.  When I hire someone, I look at the work experience,
problem solving technique, etc. long before I would look at whether they
are certified or not.

An interesting thread was started on Slashdot about IT Certifications
(http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=06/10/06/0337209).

I'm curious as to how valuable certifications are in the System i
market.
