Why do they not think of him in a flattering light? Isn't he considered one of the best in the world? How does the PICP differ from the regular cert, what other things have you learned/used that you got form the PICP cert?
The PICP is an excellent cert. My clients, both athletes and the average Jane and Joe have benefited. Still after 20 years most gyms and folk in the exercise world have never heard of Charles or think of him in a not so flattering light.
As to why the job search? Running my own business is fine. I won't give it up. But, if on a part-time basis something were to present itself, I would consider it.
