Hi Andy and Dave:

If you read the Ingots FAQ, you will probably find information that
will inform you more of their programme.

One of the interesting FAQ states:

"We will support training assessor trainers in any country in the
World, normally free of charge if the country demonstrates it has a
viable business plan to expand the INGOT programme and will support
translation of the web site, certificates and the handbook into their

A couple of key points, 1) viable business plan 2) country. In this case
is a contradiction.

BTW .. if you would like to see an example of courses offered for OOo
go here: . If
you are asked to login, just login as guest. Choose Introduction to 2 for Win and Linxu

The lesson outline looks good, would not take much to update for 3.2 or
3.3. The problem is that would good would their certificate do someone
in the US, I have no idea how it may work for you.


The certification would not mean too much in N. America, not sure for US, but in Canada, the responsibility of education falls under the jurisdiction of the provinces (and territories). I imagine it would mean something if you were to get some kind of ISO certification if it could apply here, but there is no section for ISO software (not at least that I know) that exist at all.

You could make arrangements for the creation of a certification/accreditation programme from a University. That could easily be arranged as an e-course, but the costs would definitely be LARGE as compared to those quoted on the Ingots site.

Another option would be a TDF-run certification programme very much like that of RedHat ( This is what I would favour. It could be run as a "for-profit" endeavour run under either the or banner. This would eliminate any problems with associated with the not-for-profit Putting up a Moodle LCMS site of our own as member of the TDF/LibO membership would not be beyond our expertise nor our membership capabilities. We have the membership and we have the experts. TDF/Certification

Running a certification programme always helps in defining and promoting the legitimacy of a company's software/hardware product confidence.
