Hi Roy,

Thanks for your input.  To account for cases such as yours, I think the
application form will offer the option to either upload a tutorial for
review or provide a link.  You would probably simply give a link or
upload the file, but indicate (via checkbox) that you do *not* wish to
have the file hosted on the Blender wiki.

Regarding the "what's in it for me" question, that's probably something
you'll have to answer for your self.  Certification in our case means
that you are "approved" by the Blender Foundation to train and instruct
people on how to use Blender.  It's an "I'm official" stamp that lends
you credibility by your association with the foundation and a credible
third-party reference.  Also, from a more shrewd perspective, it's an
external reference to you and your site from a site with heavy traffic.

I think the above things are worth paying for, don't you?  We intend
for these certifications to have value, to mean something.  If you have
any ideas on how we might do that even more, please share them.
