>So, is there anything I can do in order to work towards as a software

Yes there is, it's just that there is no magic button to press to
becoming one.

My advice would be to first get a good understand of what
[professional] software development is all about. You're experience
should already gives you a good start on your way ,which can be
supplemented with a couple of good software engineering books
(Pressman, Davis, Sommerville are excellent authors).

As for you moving forward with your career , well the best place would
be within your present company, try and convince them of the
importance and benefits of such a role.

By all means do the mcsd, CSDP or any other certifications which you
think may help, so long as you're learning as well. Just remember that
without experience in that sort of role, few, if any, companies would
hire you given the critical nature of the role.

Good luck
