PMP???Project Management Professional????? i was thinking of something which would help me get into a pen test team... (concentrating more on the technical side and not on managing)
i came across ISECOM certification but haven't seen any accredited training centers here in India
i herd ppl say that the EC council exams are very static and therefore it is very easy to clear them and this in tern has resulted in decline of the certificate value in the Industry..

But telling us that you want to be more on the technical side is helpful. This too shall become more specialized as the industry matures. Are you a Windows guru, Linux guy, come from the networking side, are you a coder, DBA who prefers web app security testing, great at social engineering... Many ways you can go to be a part of this community without being an uber-haxor. And each has it's own courses and rcedentials. You just have to decide where you want to be.
Hope this helps,
