I agree with Wim.
A Drupal certification can at best show that you are proficient with the
hooks, theming, and core modules of Drupal of a certain version. As well
all know, those are moving targets, and would need to be retested every
That said, a portfolio and list of contributed modules probably speaks
far more for your knowledge of the platform than any test you take.
