You can't speak on behalf of everybody, only yourself, and that just seems to be the way it would be.I have yet to see anybody "lording" over anybody. As I said, I know a number of people with certs and dealing & developing certs and this is not the case. In fact, the purpose of certification goes nowhere near that. Certification is a tool, not a status.
Anyway rereading the OP, the answer is this: certs do exist in the US. For the most part, they are still spreading and being tested, but they do exist. As far as ADAPT certs being available in the US? I think they've already done one in Ohio last year or something. I'm not sure if they're doing more (their site http://www.adaptqualifications.com/courses-dates/ doesn't seem to indicate that they are). However, they do list several places that are "capable of delivering the ADAPT Qualification without supervision from ADAPT Qualifications Ltd." Maybe you could be one of the people to help make one here
