In my experience any certification is only slightly useful
and then only in the short term. And I include degrees in that.
They are very bad at determining a person's capabilities.

For me yes. There is no dividing line between development
and admin in my opinion as both involve solving the same
problems and require the same taste in logic.
You will notice that people who are good at one are good at the other.
