What about certifiying the instructor first? I mean: 'PGDG Certified 
Instructors'. If I'm a PGDG Certified instructor, everyone should be sure 
that I could answare almost 'any' question about PostgreSQL.

Ok, let's see the point: We are running an open-source product, that has 
no company with it. I'd prefer a class that will be certified by a company 
or Development Group. For example, there are a lot of Linux Classes in 
here; but when I feel that I need to take a certificate, I'd prefer Red 
Hat's exams. So, there may be a lot of PostgreSQL classes everywhere --but 
I'm pretty sure that people will choose a (PGDG) certified class.

All you need to say is 'PGDG Certifies XX Company's Courses'; you do not 
need to announce the opposite.
