Excellent Thank you Marco! This would definitely fall under QGIS
Certification, and this would be a set of self study training courses. For
each course completed an have a smaller examination and certificate of
completion. What I am envisioning is a group of courses that once
completed would prepare a person for each certification level. I saw that
the curricula is already defined for the entry level courses, is this
correct and does anyone know where this is located?
