There are a few Microsoft Certified creditations.

Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)
Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
Microsoft Certified Master (MCM)
Microsoft Certified Architecht (MCA)

The MCTS & MCITP are the regular certs that everyone goes for and in my experience of gaining both qualifications there is no real difference between the courses or the exams, except the MCTS is more practical and the MCITP is more theory.  The content seemed to be the same and even the questions in the Exams were similar.

The MCM involves 3 weeks at Redmond being trained by Microsoft and costs around $18,000, more details can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/master-exchange.aspx

The MCA has a pre-requisite of being an MCM and more details can be found here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/architect.aspx#tab2

The above are all just Exchange.
You can only take Exchange 2010 certifications now.  The 2007 ones are still valid but I am not sure you will be able to take the exams.
