Moving to "Other Certifications"...

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus

None really. Except some funds at your disposal
(UML certification)

IBM 486 is not UML certification. It is part of Websphere Enterprise Developer Certification which requires three more exams to pass. Look up
OMG is offering three levels of UML certification. Each exam costs more than IBM 486. More details here
Best wishes

There is no pre-requisite for 486. You don't have to have passed anything else in order to take the exam (is this what you meant?).

Out of interest, which of these (IBM 486/OMG)is the most widely recognised?

It is difficult to say.

IBM 486 seems more popular, however, it is NOT a cert.

OMG focus on the specification of UML 2.0, which I feel it might be too theoratical.

But seems these 2 exams are the only UML-focus exams.

I agree. Here's the link:
