Ya, interesting topic; and good subsequent discussion!
I believe that successfully passing a SAS Certification exam nets the candidate an email stating that fact... or maybe it was a certificate... (It has been a while since we sent a brave SAS adventurer to explore SAS certification, so I am a bit cloudy on the actual deliverable). Consequently, that email or certificate could be demanded of a candidate who's name is not on the SAS web site. The person should have some kind of proof!
Ya, best of luck in all of your SAS endeavors!
I hope that this suggestion proves helpful now, and in the future!
