What about required presence of third party on the lab and Q&A?
Regular exchanges of training facility observers.
Like BCD certified trainers have to have x amount of hours observing
lectures of fellow trainers.
And also have x amount of lecture hours observed by fellow trainers.
Is there plan for two groups of of certificates?
Trainer vs. trainee.
Certificates that person can actually teach unix literate.
Certificates that person can actually teach a novice.
Certificates that person can actually teach trainers.
Certificates that person can actually use BSD unix.
Certificates that person can actually administer a BSD unix box.
Certificates that person can actually administer an enterprise network
of BSD unix boxes (efficiently).
