Hi all.
I see good and bad sides of this approach. One potentially disruptive
issue is competition between the teaching activities of OSGeo members:
to compete with your members is probably not a very brilliant idea, and
should better be avoided; that's why we (GFOSS.it) decided not to hold
commercial courses. But of course we may be wrong, and there amy be godd
ways to avoid conflicts.

What do you actually mean by this?
All the best.
