Debian is a volunteer project and has neither the inclination or
capability to run professional certifications, and is not involved or
partnering with any other organization to provide such. This does not
prevent other interested parties from providing such certification, but
Debian itself has no part in them.

I have personally no opinion about professional certification.

You'll have to take that up with the LPI, I guess.

Without grand dreams, how can you save the world?
