Why wouldn't a 20 or 30 year record of successful practice prove proficiency as a project manager?

You wouldn't hire a doctor, laywer, engineer, CPA, or even a barber without the proper credentials. Most reputable firms and federal agencies won't hire project managers without the proper credentials either. There have been too many cases of incompetent project managers costing commercial firms and taxpayers huge amounts of money. The PMP certification is the proper credential for the project management professional. Once you have the credentials, then a history of successful experience is a discriminator, but a pretty resume can't make up for the lack of proper credentials.
