I'd see it as a major negative on a resume. All that really matters is
experience and writing samples.

The new version seems like an even more blatant self-serving scam for
the STC than the old one. Not only do they require payment up front,
but to keep your certificate current you need to take part in various
STC activities or take college courses related to technical writing.
