I wish OpenAI to create an official certification for prompt engineering or GPTs creation

To better promote ChatGPT and GPTs to Japanese companies, I believe it would be beneficial to have an official certification in prompt engineering or GPTs creation from OpenAI.

This certification would enhance trust and demonstrate my expertise, making it easier to convince potential clients of the value of these technologies.

AI is a revolutionary new technology, but its global adoption is still limited. To help advanced “AI Fan” promote the use of ChatGPT and GPTs to a wider audience, I wish that OpenAI consider establishing an official certification.

Whether I can pass its test myself is another question, though.

The certification is counter-productive for a prompt-based approach. Unless openai release a seed against hallucination and guarantee reproducibility, the idea of certification is completely naive.


Thank you for your feedback. I apologize for not explaining myself clearly earlier.

I am not hoping for such a high level of certification from OpenAI. What I and other individual consultants need is a certification that assures that we have a certain level of knowledge and skills in utilizing ChatGPT for business tasks, creating GPTs, and conducting prompt engineering training and consulting, particularly to sell these services to small business owners.

I have published quite a few custom GPTs that are highly effective, but it’s difficult to have my abilities recognized.

This might be unique to my situation, but even an easy certification or credential carries significant weight. Although not everyone uses, the names OpenAI and ChatGPT are very well-known. Therefore, a certification from OpenAI would have a substantial impact on my work.

While there isn’t an official “certification” from OpenAI, there is a prompt engineering course on deeplearning.ai in collaboration with OpenAI.

It’s a common problem for unregulated professions. One approach is to show case studies of what you’ve done.

I need to differentiate my work as a consultant in prompt engineering. However it’s an unregulated profession, so I plan to show case studies. You are an expert at writing case studies.
Your task is to:

  1. Show me a template for case studies that I can put in my (presentation?) for people who are (potential clients in x industry).
  2. Help me define my case study, by asking me questions about my project, until you understand the case. one question at a time.
  3. Then write out my case study.

I see, thank you for explaining. I will consider it.

Thank you for your valuable advice. I understand that showcasing case studies is an effective approach to demonstrate my expertise in an unregulated profession like prompt engineering.

However, in Japan, especially for individuals, it’s sometimes challenging to gain trust without some form of proof with strong name recognition.

OpenAI is unlikely to create an official certification in prompt engineering or custom GPT creation because the core idea behind these tools is to make AI accessible to the general public without requiring specialized education.

Introducing formal certifications would counteract this goal by implying that specialized training is necessary, which could deter potential users.


Indeed, in Japanese culture, having an official certification can sometimes be a tool for gaining trust.

However, in a field like this, whether such certifications exist or not doesn’t really matter.

It would be great if Japanese companies could significantly shift their recognition of these skills.
I have doubts about whether prompt engineering itself is a valid skill though.
