How is wireless security addressed in certifications?

Aside from Planet3Wireless Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CNWA) and its related credentials -- for more information, see http://www.cwne.com/cwna/index.html -- most other security certs cover wireless only briefly and in passing. This will change with time, because of the increasing market penetration and popularity of wireless networking. But for now, outside the aforementioned credentials, it's treated as an incident topic, if not an afterthought.
