      It appears that Cape Project Management, Incorporated is, as owner of
      the trademark, the certifier. It appears that Dan Tousignant is the
      instructor of the course, a management consultant at Cape Project
      Management, Incorporated, and a past employee of Guidance Technology,
      the organization giving the course. Dan is still listed as "Training
      Lead" on http://www.guidance-technology.com/company/management-team/ but
      that is marked as a past position on
      http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=14884438&authType=NAME_SEARCH&authToken=6oGM

      Dan Tousignant is listed as Registered Agent, President, Treasurer,
      Secretary and Director of Cape Project Management, Incorporated which
      was incorporated last October.
