Mac Training

I'm CompTia certified. My old Microsoft IT school is now advertising Apple certification in their courses??
I could swear , Apple certs were in shop?? Are they available now?? Even from a advertised Microsoft school???
Before anyone gets into the old Microsoft /Apple conflict , I use both and Linux as well.
Just wondering if the schools claim is legit.
And , If not, who should investigate the claim??

used to be that there was only one type of Apple certification. To earn that you had to work for an Apple Authorized Service Provider (AASP)

Then they changed the rules and made the training material available to anyone, for a fairly high price.

This led to the two certificate situation.

1. The type of certificate that enabled you to work for an AASP, order parts under warranty and actually make a living.

2. Just a nice certificate that said you were qualified but did not allow you to order any parts at all and really only gave you a nice fuzzy feeling and something to put on your resume.
