Microsoft SQL Certification

Hello all,
Our company that hosts several physician offices is going into the EMR arena.  We are going with a canned PM/EMR package that is based upon MS SQL Server.  We are becoming certified on their software (which is Greenway), but I also want to become certified on SQL Server.  
I currently am certified on several networking architectures (MCSE, MCNE, Security+, Network+, Project+, etc.) so I am not scared by taking the tests, etc.
I just would like some direction on what would be the best tests to take to become SQL certified.
Also, please do not include any comments about Greenway, so far they have been a pleasure to work with.  If you have any gotchas though about going live with Greenway that would be nice to hear.
Thank you,
Kelly Wilke

70-431 is TS (TS Microsoft SQL Server 2005 - Implementation and Maintenance).
If you want MCITP then you have to do 70-441 and 70-442 (after 70-431).

70-431 almost covers the whole stuff. You actaully do not have to do more than that.

So are there different levels of SQL certification?
Is there a site at MS's website that shows this?
Thank you,
