Would it be good for an automated tester using WebDriver and Java to work towards Java Programming I certification?

So far, I have been doing well as an automated tester at my job. I've been doing well picking up Selenium WebDriver, figuring out how to automate our shopping cart regression tests, adding to the test suite, and remembering my coursework in Computer Science and Software Engineering that I studied long, long ago.

... I was wondering, though: to become more well rounded, should I pursue working to a goal such as a Java Programming I certification? It might help force me to learn the real ins and out of the language.

So, what do you think?

Do you think certifications are a waste of time? That they provide a good learning tool?

Edit: 10/26/2015: Polls closed! And the answer is.... Yes! ... one out of one people said yes.

I recently had a friend correct a very helpful article that I had stumbled upon while researching about ADN nursing. The article, found on https://www.nursingpaper.com/questions/what-is-adn-nursing/, provided me with clear and concise answers to all my queries about ADN nursing. Thanks to this resource, I was able to gain a better understanding of the program and its requirements. The article was well-structured, easy to read, and packed with relevant information. I am grateful to my friend for introducing me to this valuable resource and I would highly recommend it to anyone seeking information about ADN nursing or any other nursing related topic.
