Check out this announcement about a newly-available XML certification: XML Master
This announcement was just released today. All I know about it is what's accessible via the above hyperlink.

I took the XML Master Basic test today, and passed with a score of 87%.
Here's the breakdown:
  • 88% xml
  • 100% xslt
  • 100% dtd
  • 50% xmlschema
  • 0% xpath
  • 100% dom/namespace

  • I haven't taken IBM 141 yet (maybe I'll take it next week), so I can't give a comparison.
    In studying, I was focusing a lot on XSLT. But it turns out there were only 3 or 4 questions (out of 40) on that.
    As I finished the test, I thought my score would have been a little higher. I'm surprised I only got 0% for XPATH. I suppose there's some subtle questions.
    I was worried initially about the time limit (60 minutes). But I actually finished in just 40 minutes, since I wanted to get back to work.

    I took IBM 141 today and passed with a score of 76%. 141 is a little harder than XML Master Basic.

    I received the certificate yesterday from Japan. It took six weeks. This one is vertically oriented. It doesn't say "XML Master Basic", but rather says "XML Master".
     
    Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
