Certification can't be measure as Value Based.
It's Mine of Knowledge.
The Preparation of SCEA Touches the each and every Milestone of Java Technology in various concepts. The Preparation only gives right confidence on solution methodologies
in any sort of realtime problem.
the application and way of presentaion depends on us to grab the position of an architech in any Oraganization or somewhere else.
But One thing I can say Surely, while discovering the path to clear this certification (Java Ranch) makes your presentation in front of great people like
Mikalai Zaikin and Cameron Wallace McKenzie . This is enough to observe every change in Java technology usage.
you asked very Direct Question in this forum, my clearcut answer is definitely SCEA makes your ability in a modest way.
The value is not in the certification, the value is what we gain from doing the certification exams.
The industry isn't interested much in what we have, it is interested in what we know, what we can do and what we can deliver.
Hope this helps.

Sure it has significance. It's pretty hard to tell how employers see it though. However, note that it's the highest you can achieve in Java certification path and that fact shows you in a great light if you managed to pass it. If you're able to clear SCEA and other certs it basically means that you're pretty hard-working, keen, self-organized person and have a great ability to solve problems and understand the technology. And you have a proof of it.
