If your company is paying then its best to use that money. Actually my main motivation was that when I did mine :-) more than 10 years ago. But, after doing certifications I realize they are complete worth of your time and money. You learn a lot while preparing for certification that helps in Job interviews and your day to day job. I actually come out as better a Java programmer after passing my certification.
