Agree Ski creating an open source focused vendor neutral program is hard
work though not impossible.

I did just that over the last few years, created Cloud Genius
https://be.a.cloudgeni.us/get-certified, licensed it to a couple academic
institutions http://www.lwtech.edu/ce/cloudgenius and
http://niu.edu/springboard/Cloud_Genius/ and got recognized as one of the
top 10 vendor neutral cloud programs by the CIO magazine. Also, got great
recognition by US military in helping returning soldiers land dream jobs in
tech industry. I routinely train employees of Boeing, Expedia, Microsoft,
AT&T and other local companies with a focus on the customer, while shaping
core skills with open source.

Obtaining core skills + some skills around popular open source products is
a way to accomplish competitive edge today.  I would love to offer help to
people looking to develop core skills in association with SASAG.
