Doug Eadline has a post over at ClusterMonkey that references a really cool thing.

From the certification site
GridsWatch Grid Portal team – with Georgetown University’s Advanced Research Computing is working in conjunction with advanced open source and commercial vendors to strengthen this training and certification program for High Performance, High Throughput, and Grid Computing.
