Any way of getting around the "Rational certs only for partners" thing?

Hi all.
Isn't there a way of getting around this problem? I'm not a partner of IBM nor am i an employee.
I wanted to do the IBM Certified Specialist for Rational Object Oriented Design (tests 633, 634, 635).
Can't one become a member or something or the like?

If not, are there any other OOAD certifications available on the market
You comments are very valuable to me.

Regards,
Mars.

The 486 is partially OOAD.

I dont think that its only for partners...

I think that it's open... the only problem is that the last exam is about Rational Rose... not only OOAD Concepts.

Please refer to the statement declared in this website:
http://www-03.ibm.com/certify/certs/rl_index.shtml


Certifications for all IBM Business Partners, Educational Partners and IBM employees only

The following certifications assume experience with the underlying Rational products and therefore are open only to IBM Business Partners, IBM Educational Partners and IBM employees. They are not open to end-users!
