How does one become a saddle fitter?

Master Saddlers Association has a Certified Saddle Fitter program, but it looks like it only involves 2 weeks of actual training. I can't imagine this is the best program out there or that you come out of it with enough knowledge/experience to start fitting and modifying saddles on your own.

Anyone know what one would do to become a respected and knowledgeable saddle fitter?

Personally I would take as many certification tests as possible, and possibly intern under a well known saddle fitter. Just get as knowledgeable about it as possible, and the more people you ask about it, the more techniques and views you get.. kind of like the same for teaching or training or farrier work.

I saw their website, too, but they seem to be only in the UK and spending several years there is currently a bit out of my reach.
