What are the qualifications for ISO certification.
A question from a senior member of my company was can you become ISO certified when you’re not a profitable company. I am under the impression a certification body would not accept a contract to perform certification if your not profitable. Thus the question, is it allowable to become certified if your company isn’t profitable?

Are you talking about ISO 9001? 
As long as your organization has the funds to pay for the certification service it would be OK. You could look at it as a way to return to profitability by improving quality practices.
There is not such requirement in the standard. (threr are many nonprofit organizaitons which were certfied by accredited boddies).
