in thread What is your opinion in Perl Certified Professional?

The reason is that YOU have not created the certification yet, nor have you written the exams, used them on guinea pigs to evaluate your exams' worth, or marketed your shiny new certification programme.
And then figured out how to recover the cost of doing all that, either by testing for free but charging for "services" (cheat books? {grin}), or by charging for testing itself.

And there we are, back to the main game. It's a money thing. Somehow, someone has to pay for the cost. If it's open source, everyone knows the answers, so that won't work. So it has to be done in private, with someone bearing the cost of all those steps DrHyde listed.
