Hello @smac,  

Rather than asking who's certifying the ROS courses, the actual question that matters to us at Acutronic Robotics is what do these profiles that include an item listed as `ROS expertise` or `Experience with ROS` actually mean with that. 

That simply they've installed ROS and went through the wiki.ros.org tutorials? That it was part of one of their grad or undergrad courses? That they've contributed to the navigation stack? Not likely this last one since those that have contributed to relevant packages, tend to list it. At least that's my experience hiring.

Of course, you could claim that you somehow figure that out through questioning and exercises but we particularly would benefit a lot optimizing this step. Having people sending their applications with small certifications (at this stage, all the ROS courses are self-certified including @TheConstruct's but also the ones from other sources such as Udacity, EdX or others) allow us to go through the ROS-specific syllabus and understand what these profiles "should know".

Looking at @TheConstruct courses, IMHO [their portfolio](http://www.theconstructsim.com/construct-learn-develop-robots-using-ros/robotigniteacademy_learnros/ros-courses-library/) is starting to become wide enough to cover relevant topics of ROS.
