IMHO it's not worth it. It's just a piece of paper that says you know how to string a tennis racket, and none other racket sports. Some think that getting a CRT or MRT, makes you better than the next guy, NOT. All it means is you paid USRSA $269 to give you a test, if you are not already a USRSA member. If you want to get on the Pro Stringer teams, they consider having a MRT/CRT cert, as to be part of qualifications. (though I could be wrong) You can probably ask Drakulie, but I don't think he ever mentioned being a certified, but his work experience surely qualifies him.
Don't get me wrong, the USRSA does provide a great resource of information, but it's really a business.
You are better off being a USRSA member just to get the RST and Stringers Digest, then cancel. I have both from 2005, and rarely reference them.
