The closest that I have found, thus far, are as described at

"Certificate in Perl Programming
(Autumn, Downtown Seattle)"

and as mentioned at

http://www.oreillyschool.com/certificates/upcoming-courses.php ;
"Programming Perl Certificate Series
We're just now putting together the specifications of this series; stay 
Estimated Release: December 2009".

The first, at present, requires physical attendance in Seattle, (but may 
be available online, in the future), and the second is an online course 
under development, so, with both of those, it is a matter of waiting and 
seeing what (if anything) arises, and, how good each would be.
