Do Technical Writers Need Certification?

Personally, I’d rather see it done as a series of courses and tests covering major areas of the profession. Basing it on a portfolio immediately cuts out a large portion of the writing community who produce proprietary material. Most writers would probably be better off pursuing an advanced degree like an MA from a university that offers a technical communication program.
