I hope this is the most related thread to my question that will follow! Is there an online based mechanism where a team can take training and get certified on OpenMRS at different levels? I see interesting resources available for anyone who wanted to invest in learning, but a way to measure that would also be interesting(getting certified for example).

Trying to build up on the above point.
