70-461 Only- Certificate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm Planning to take the 70-461 soon. I DON'T plan on taking 462 and 463. I am an analyst for a health insurance company. My job only requires querying. It is not my plan to become a DBA- I just want to prove my competency at querying to future employers.

    My question is: Is there a stand alone certificate to prove/or show (on my resume) that i've taken and passed 70-461?

  • The exam will appear on your MCP transcript which can be downloaded from the MCP site.  You can also setup Transcript Sharing which allows someone to validate your transcript using a Transcript ID and Access Code (which are created during the setup process).

  • Yes. You get a certificate for passing the exam. But i don't know if it is a MCTS. But for sure you get a score report and can download the transscript from the mcp website.

  • Actually you won't get a certificate.  You'll only get a certificate when you complete all the exams required for MCSA or MCSE

  • Not even one of these nice PDFs for passing the exam? I can download one for all my exams.

  • I've checked with a couple of people who have passed this exam and they've stated that no certification is available for purchase or download.

  • So basically, there's no record of you having passed the exam unless you take 462 and 463?
