I think success depends a lot more on ambition and courage than on a degree of any kind. If you want to work as a designer, gather your best work, write up a summary of the programs you know how to use and just do it. People are interested in the end product (your work), not necessarily how you learned to do it - at least on the internet.

A portfolio of your work. These are the best ways of showing what you are capable of without a piece of paper saying you have passed an exam or four. Along with a good chunk of your best work (all dated and with details such as what programme you used) add a CV, not just what jobs you have had but what you have done in your own time, how you have learnt to use the programmes and how you have bettered your skills. Basically just expand on what you have told us MyLotters.
