PMI-Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)
Agile Certified Practitioner (ACP) is PMI's latest and fastest growing credential.  In the first 3 months after its roll out in Jan 2012 more than 750 candidates passed the exam and certified as ACP. 
Why an Agile certification?

In 2008, before developing the new PMI-ACP certification, PMI conducted a study of 600 organizations representing 900 project management practitioners. It later compared that study to one it conducted in 2011. Of the 2008 respondents, 15% were using Agile methodologies; of the 2011 respondents, 30% were. This growth prompted PMI to look into whether it made sense to create an Agile certification. In turn, it put together a steering committee of Agile thought leaders, many of whom are not PMI members, to look into what the organization might offer for Agile practitioners. The steering committee included a co-author of the Agile Manifesto, people involved with lean and kanban tools, leaders in the Dynamic Systems Development Method, and other Agile experts.

Through 18 months of research and preparation, the steering committee found the industry did indeed need a certification to fill a specific Agile niche -- the codification of what Agile means -- in order to create a common language across Agile organizations. It also was necessary to show that certification holders were not only aware of Agile, but also trained and experienced in actually executing Agile methodologies: No amount of training or examinations can replace good old-fashioned experience.
