My question is about the validate of this certification for the
clients.  Make difference to be certified?

Clueful clients will look unfavorably on any "PostgreSQL
certification" you have.  They will instead insist on experience and
references, as clueful clients do. :)

I don't believe that's true. Oracle certification means quite a bit. Cisco certification is excellent. Sun certification is decent. If the PostgreSQL certifications don't mean much it is a problem with the particular vendor of the certificate and you (as a PostgreSQL entity) should contest their right to use PostgreSQL name in their advertising or marketing. Certification programs can and should mean something.

We offer training programs here and have considered offering OmniTI certifications in the future. I wouldn't offer then unless I thought it meant something that companies "out there" could rely on. Many other certifying entities have the same approach.
