I'm just dead good at what I do.
I trade on my reputation, so if I don't have da skillz personally or inhouse then I hire in an appropriate contractor for that job. Now that skills deficit may indicate a training gap and a need for CPD, or perhaps we shouldn't take on jobs outside of the scope of our current abilities.
As has been mentioned elsewhere in this thread, the continuous training and endless certification requirements are a significant and ongoing cost in personnel time and money.
