With 25 years of prior experience and good references, I think your
biggest areas to work on are updating whatever technical knowledge you
have/had in the fields you were writing in and getting updated on
current practices. I don't think that getting the certificates would
help all that much..

Now the kids are grown and driving themselves and in college. I really miss technical writing, and would like to get back into the business.
