CIW offers a "Database Specialist" exam: http://www.ciwcertified.com/exams/1d0441.asp?comm=home&llm=4#info
I doubt it has much industry weight though. You are much better off going with the Oracle certification.

Matthew the best exam in this regard is "RDBMS Concepts" from Brainbench Inc. (www.brainbench.com), good thing is that it is one of the free available tests at the site. But if you need a paper certificate of the same, it will cost you under $10. The Test is very competitive and professional.
