Hi Daniil,

Welcome to the Bf-education mailing list.  I didn't see a reply to your 
question on the list itself but perhaps someone has already contacted 
you off the list.  In any case, I wanted to let you know that an 
educational review board has just been set up to design and implement 
the certification program.  I'm a member of this new board and hope that 
we will have an official certification process soon.  You sound like a 
perfect example of the kind of educator that would benefit from the 
certification process.

I'd also point you in the direction of tosmi.org This is a series of EU 
funded trainings on open source for media professionals, that is in part 
designed to combat the kind of piracy that you reference.  A new session 
of these trainings will take place in Sofia, Bulgaria and Thessaloniki 
Greece in 08.  If you're interested in learning more about this feel 
free to contact me off the list at hodges at tablechairwall.com
