There has historically been strong opposition in the Python community to
anything that smacks of certification (the opposition mostly comes from
seeing the ugly mess that certification often/usually leads to).  So
that's something to be aware of and possibly careful about.

On the other hand, the Python community has also historically been very
positive in encouraging various approaches to learning and training.  So
presenting this as a learning/training mechanism would likely get better
