The real reason I was looking for some kind of certification, is the course 
I'm trying to start.

Here in Rio de Janeiro, there are ZERO PHP Training Courses (in all Brazil

All other courses has a certification or at least a diploma from a 
'Macromedia Certified' or 'Microsoft Oficial Partner' establishment.

It wouldn't be so bad to have 'PHP Endorsing Site', 'PHP Certified 
Professional' and so on... don't you think?
