I have years of experience but no certificates and have trouble getting interviews but when I do get one I usually get the job.

A certificate will show competence, commitment and most importantly allows you to get your foot through the door.

I am hoping to get the SCJA as soon as affordable to increase the amount of doors I can get my feet through.

Good luck.
