STC designed the cert process for TWs with experience and proven skills (AKA "curmudgeonly skeptics"). Unfortunately for STC, those with the most to gain from betting on an unproven cert process are the inexperienced TWs looking for a leg up in the hiring process. Maybe the cert process could be tweaked to be more accessible for young guinea pigs.

(At these prices, Richard's use of "betting" is especially appropriate.)

They haven't, of course. They can only become the case after certification has been in place for quite some time and has proven itself.

Early adopters will be betting that that eventually happens.
