Hi Oleksiy,

Actually there is movement to certifying people in OpenStreetMap, but
not an international type of certification (unless there is one I'm
not aware). The Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team is creating a
curriculum in Indonesia which will hopefully be approved to be a
government certified training course.

There has been thought of doing a wider sort of certification, since
there are certainly countries where this is valuable to people.
