one of those recognized public certification: entrust, digicert, and verisign

from wikipedia: ... there is More than 50 root certificates are trusted in the most popular web browser versions.

PKI Infrastructure should be covered at some level by just about any good security certification.  As you mentioned, it'll be in the CISSP, but will also make an appearance in the entry level SANS security cert, the other ISC^2 certs, even the Security+.

Unfortunately I'm not aware of the equivalent of a PKI Infrastructure Architech.

Microsoft did once offer a specific PKI Infrastructure course (Course 2821A), but it'll be oriented towards their solution, and an older version of it at that.

(And of course, google provides some links...
http://www.net-security-training.co.uk/course-information/course-list/pki-training/ - offers a 'certification', but I've never heard of them, and they can't be bothered to spell training right.)
