Hi all,

I've mailed a couple of times with this person; at first I thought they  
wanted to advertise "system administration certification", but he  
confirmed his .org is specialized in setting up certification programs,  
and he's very willing to assist;

We could definitely assist as we've spent the last year researching the  
available resources and costs. Probably a good place to start is by  
your group of educators drafting a list of questions or perhaps a list  
of their
goals. This would give us a starting base to see if our goals are  
complementary and if we could be of assistance to each other.

Anyone interested to follow up? Developing an official "Blender Trainer  
Certification" was on our long old wishlist...
