Hi Jason,

Let me reply to your second email.
No issue with Blender Foundation not being fully involved with the
certification. It would be nice but an endorsement should be sufficient.
Concerning the versions, additional features don't necessary need to be
included in the cerification if they are advanced features. The way I would
see it is a series of level based certifications (2, 3,4) matching in UK the
GCSE, A-level and further. Basic levels are more knowledge based (quiz) and
advance level are more task based. It means that updates between version
don't disrupt level 2 and 3.

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
