This week's book giveaway is in the Mac OS forum. We're giving away four copies of a choice of "Take Control of Upgrading to Yosemite" or "Take Control of Automating Your Mac" and have Joe Kissell on-line! See this thread for details.
There are various options available for design related certifications.

3. SCEA where you will be tested on design, analysis and design patters etc.
4. Other certifications like TOGAF.
Hope this helps.
