Jira Administration Certification- Is it yet available

At the 2013 Summit, It was mentioned that there is a Jira Admin Certification Available or Coming Soon. Does anyone know if that has come to fruition or not and if so, where do I find information on it?

That's a really useful exam which costs ~$20/month to keep because it costs $350 and expires in 18 months. A little bit more than my unlimited 4G mobile plan. 

Double the costs if you want to add Confluence. Anyway, the fame of being a certified ACP is priceless. 

Since this questions hasn't been asked since 2013, I'm following up to ask again.  Does Atlassian or any other provider offer any Atlassian application certifications beyond the user training yet? If not yet, when?  Other major vendors for such a widely used system offer such certifications for their sys admins and internal experts. It would be great to validate these valuable skills with certifications!
