Project Management Certifications

I am in search of project management certifications which don't expect one to have already served as a project manager. I see PMP but it asks for prior project management experience. I have been a team lead but don't have project management experience. Are there any known certifications that meet my needs ?

Use Head First PMP. Even I'm targeting it later next year though I do not have any project management experience.

Is it possible to take PMP without management experience ?

You need experience to get certified. I'm not sure if you can take the test and get the experience later. It probably says it in the rules PDF.
