Dear Jason,

I think we misunderstood each other.
I was making the case of a blender certification that could help the learner
to prove its skills more easily and helps educators in institutions (
school, colleges and other) to make the case for delivering a course based
on an Open Source software like Blender.
I was answering your point concerning the lack of resources that could be
allocated to a certification process, saying that it may be self sufficient
on a long term basis.
The financial side of it has its importance as every educational institution
has to worry about that.
However, the priority is education not money.

You have a lot of teenagers/ young adults that could benefit from courses
like that and a certification is something valuable for their future

Ton knows more about this than I do, but my understanding is that the
Foundation isn't currently hurting for funds at the moment... so it has the
luxury of making decisions that aren't necessarily driven by the lack or
presence of cash. Furthermore, this starts sounding a lot like a commercial
enterprise and I'm not sure that's a direction that the Foundation wants to
move in. That said, this is merely my understanding of the situation, so at
least on the financial end, we'll have to wait on someone more
