Because processing rules permanently affect Analytics data, processing rules administrators are required to receive certification training in Adobe Analytics, and be familiar with all sources of data for your report suites (standard web sites, mobile sites, mobile apps, Data Insertion API, and so on). Knowledge of the context data variables and standard variables populated in various platforms will help prevent accidental deletion or alteration of data.
It is recommended that a limited group of administrators (usually 2-3) have access to processing rules so that all requested changes are centrally planned, edited, and approved. And it's always best to have more than one administrator assigned for redundancy.

Hello tanmaym7102255 - could you update this info now that Adobe no longer partners with Pearson? We've spent a lot of time going in circles on this, thanks.

To be clear, there is no longer a requirement to become certified to use processing rules specifically.
ACE Certifications, which are quite different from the aforementioned processing rules certification, are no longer handled through Pearson as you've outlined.
