Is there any certification for Agile?

Is there a real, non-commercial certification for Agile project management (similar to the PMP certification). Does PMI provide any certification for Agile? If yes then what are the requirements to be eligible?

PMI has launched a pilot certification for Agile Software Development, you can find it here: http://www.pmi.org/en/Agile/Agile-Certification-Eligibility-Requirements.aspx . Requirements are less steep than that of the PMP: to be eligible to take the exam, you should have 2,000 hours of work with a project team within the last 5 years, AND 1,500 of work in Agile teams, AND 21 contact hours. The certification has to be maintained by 30 PDUs every 3 years. Again, this is still a pilot.

In reality, there is no "official" Agile certification, and the Agile Alliance (a non-profit organization supporting Agile practices) has its own view on the subject of certification, and why they're still offering none: http://www.agilealliance.org/news/agile-certification-a-position-statement/ . I personally agree with the Alliance's view on certifications.
