PCN vs ISO 9712 certification scheme details

Dear Experts,

Greetings of the day!
This is R V Singh from India.
I am ASNT NDT Level III certified engineer and I had worked in NDT field for quite some time. Now, I want to get certified as NDT Level-III based on ISO 9712 or PCN (which is obviously based on ISO 9712 itself) standard. But while doing my research I came across certain inexplicable findings and therefore writing here to get expert opinions please:

1) As per current market trends (in Middle East/South East Asia) between candidates holding PCN certifications and those who hold ISO 9712 certifications, who is seen as more authentic, respectable and can hope to receives better future prospects?

2) Why the cost of doing PCN certification is much more higher than doing a ISO 9712 certification? (Initially I will be looking for certifications in UT, PAUT and ToFD)

3) Can any of you please suggest me some genuine and properly accredited training and certification institutes here in India or in nearby countries?

4) Any other suggestions that can help me with deciding what scheme of certification I should choose and which institute is also very much welcome.

Thank you very much for your time and kind attention.
Regards,
Ranvijay

If you possess a good knowledge, ISO9712 (PCN/CSWIP/CGSP/any ISO 9712) from any CB is acceptable.
2)Why the cost of doing PCN certification is much more higher than doing a ISO 9712 certification? (Initially I will be looking for certifications in UT, PAUT and ToFD)
Britishers always has a tendency to loot money. Indian ATO/AQB's act as a collection agent and handover a good money to Brits. Meanwhile Indians also loot money on this exercise
3) Can any of you please suggest me some genuine and properly accredited training and certification institutes here in India or in nearby countries?
which method you intend to attend? specify that sothat I will suggest a best option
4) Any other suggestions that can help me with deciding what scheme of certification I should choose and which institute is also very much welcome.
which one is cheap and in compliance with ISO 9712 prefer that and to your certification.

All ISO 9712 has a worldwide acceptability.
