As opposed to actual certification, there's this certificate from O'Reilly:

I did it a while back. About $US1600 plus about $20/month in 'lab fees'
from memory.  It used to be delivered (under the O'Reilly name) by the
illustrious U Illinios Urbana-Champaign but I think that's changed now to
an in-house O'Reilly operation.

It doesn't really cover much more than the basics of Linux sysadmin; it's a
certificate, but you can't call it certification.
