If you just force the program to be open this issue largely resolves 
itself.  Companies that want to advertise their certification should have 
to list their certified members.  Leave it up to the buyer as to whether 
they have enough of them, why should the certification authority be 
needlessly complicated by worrying about this sort of thing?

The logical leap from there is to not certify companies except indirectly 
via this mechanism, which solves the whole stack of logistics problems 
that would otherwise come from trying to figure out just what a company 
certification even means.  Saying "you can list certification for a 
company only in the context of listing your certified workers" makes the 
issue go away.
