I have made a list of architect certifications that are available in the market today:

IBM Certified SOA Solution Designer (IBM Test 665: Architectural Design of SOA Solutions)

IBM Test 649 - Rational Software Architect

BEA certified Architect

Microsoft certified Architect

Sun Certified Enterprise Architect

ECCOUNCIL E-Commerce Architect


Could you please add it to the list if I have missed out any.

From Open Group:

From IBM:
Infrastructure System Architect (For Business Partners only)

On my personal view CAPM is more insteresting than PMP for architects.

Not that the OMG uml (OCUP) exam is specifically for Architects. I would think that knowing UML well would be an advantage for Architetects.
