does companies pay more money if you have certification? if yes then i should get mine too.
USA seems to care more about this not so much in canada.
Its not like being an engineer, where certications are tracked and readily accessible as well as critical job requirements. Wages are typically linked to demonstrated skill level rather than paperwork. Its a bit of effort to have the user produce the documentation, then search the web to figure out if its actually real and/or applicable.
