  * Probably would be best to create your  own source files / lesson
    plans (legally yours to license how you wish)  and just link to
    where to download Blender3d to open the source files

        Blender3d separate with the GPL license intact and you should be
  * Certification is not absolutely required - it's actually quite new -
    but  certifications definitely boosts credibility. someone else here
    should be able to list the benifits / length of turn around time -
