Any real experience getting a visa after passing the "Japan Information Technology Engineers Examination"

I’m planning to get a job in japan in the coming years, I tested the waters and there is need for my profile but I don’t have a University degree, I read on the articles about the Japan IT Engineers Examination but before I get into it I would like to know if anyone went through that path before.

Side projects (e.g. published web application) are much more convincing that certifications/examinations in finding a job.

Certifications/examinations are useful when it comes to visa-related applications, etc.

@webdriver Do you mean the examination which is a necessary part of the new “Specified skilled worker”-visa?
