Hi Natraj,

Thanks for contacting us. :)
During the last Blender conference, the training and certification  
issue was an important topic on our agenda. The Blender Foundation has  
defined this as primal target for 2005. We are currently evaluating  
with people interested in the topic what kind of support we can give.  
This is being discussed on a mailinglist, where you are welcome to  


If you are interested to already start developing trainings, I can  
confirm that almost all material you can find on www.blender.org,  
download.blender.org and www.blender3d.org is free to be re-used. This  
with as exception our gallery section.

We can also provide discounts for books, plus we're thinking of making  
a "Blender Fundamentals" course book, which can be used for training as  

If you like, please join the mailing list, and discuss matters there.  
I've cc-ed this mail to the list as well.
