How about providing a mechanism people can use to confirm a person's
certification. Make that part of being certified.

The company could advertise having people certified for postgresql, and
their customers could check and verify that the person they are working
with is certified. Perhaps, make a requirement for companies advertising
in that manner to provide a link/button/etc. someplace on their site
that links back to the confirmation site for postgresql people.

Of course, if the list of certified people is open, then it could be up
to the certified person to list his/her company information, and then
the certification confirmation site could provide a search function. The
button/link on a "certified" company might link back with a prebuilt
search query to list their people.
