If your question has any mention of your design skills and aptitude for architecture, then I would say, SCEA is very helpful.

All the best. Please go through all certifications, their prerequisites and syllabus. Make a decision based on that.

Don't go for any certification because it is touch or because it is rare.

To offer a different view point - I think it's only valuable if it lines up with what you're wanting to do with your career and not simply for the sake of having an 'impressive' certification on your resume.

Any certification is only worth what you can convince another it's worth, as I frequently say in other places around the fora here. SCEA is a very impressive certification to a lot of employers and programmers, but it's meaningless if your job (or the career path you're on) has nothing to do with the designing of applications.

As VamC said in the prior reply - look at the syllabi for the various exams and make a decision on what to go for based on what lines up best with what you are doing and want to be doing in the future.
