    It would help but you would still need to have a portfolio of your best work.

    Certifications always help to show that you are truly experienced with tools but they won't get you a job in themselves. As John said, you'll still need to show that you can actually use the tools in practical applications and also show that you have experience in the field.

    Plus I am not sure how a qualification in a WYSIWYG editor would be of any benefit to a potential employer (in terms of actual working knowledge of making websites).

    You'd be surprised how many agencies use editors for their production work to access the version control tools. Knowing how to use a WYSIWYG doesn't mean you use it to code.
