Leading on from this question about certification, if I get someone interviewing for a job who says they are an MCP, or MCDBA, or MCTS, or MCITP, or even MVP, how can I check their credentials? Especially if I haven't participated in any of these schemes and don't understand the validity periods and what constitutes 'proof'
MCPs : 'MCPs can elect to share their certification information by providing you with their Transcript ID and their Access Code'
MVPs : 'The Microsoft MVP Awardee directory contains a listing of all the MVPs that want to share their information publicly'
MCPs can elect to share their certification information by providing you with their Transcript ID and their Access Code.
The site you need is here:
Since MVP designation is an award given by Microsoft and not a certification like the others, you need to check another site for that:
Of course, anyone claiming to have won a relevant MVP award better ace that interview!
