My farrier isn't certified, and I wouldn't give him up. He apprenticed with a well known farrier in this area, and darned if he hasn't surpassed the master in talent.
We do have a certified farrier around here that I wouldn't let near my horses. He's totally awful, and butchers horses' feet.
'Certified' doesn't always translate to 'good'. If the uncertified farrier does a great job, I wouldn't throw him over just to find a certified one.
