IPVM Certification Recognition To End Users And US Fed Access Control Certification

At my own risk, I will ask THE question. I can clearly see the value of the education itself. John you and I have spoken about how we started our own in-house IT training program. Much needed. I have no issues with your content and see the value on several levels. My question is really this. Will/do end users recognize the value of these certifications? It won't stop me from signing up, just asking an obvious question. Can we post the certifications on our website?

On a different note, the Feds passed a new requirement last week that any integrators working on access systems for the Government must have a new certification ( I forget the acronym right now), but it is only offered in DC, covers at least two days, and it is a little high priced. Do you see the day your certifications are given equal weight?
