Please suggest Mac certification options

I have been asked about expert certifications for the MacIntosh.  Could anyone provide a list and recommendations if someone wanted to pursue such a certification?

There are 3 actually... ACSA being the "big dog", akin to the MCSE in the Microsoft World.  I hold an ACSA.    The ACSP is like a certified Help Desk Tech kind of a cert and the ACTC cert is kind of similar to an MCSA cert.

Now, you can also become a Pro Application, Master Pro or Master Trainer as well if you are more of a software applications kind of person.  IE: Final Cut Pro Master.  Not sure how useful that really is...

The food chain is: ACSP, ACTC then ACSA being the "engineer".

The link bsharath gave is good for ACSP, ACTC and ACSA but here is the Applications Master link: http://training.apple.com/certification/proapps

Good luck!  The tests are a pain :)

Can anyone comment on their relevant personal experiences?  I am trying to give my young son some direction and I'm a PC guy.
For example: Are these worth the time and money?  Are any of these redundant or unnecessary, more helpful than others?  Any comments whatsoever would be sincerely appreciated!

Oh, sorry I forgot to mention the ACMT (Apple Certified Mac Tech) if you are a hardware guy and the regular Apple Certified Trainer cert....
