  • Hi Sathish,

    MCP is no longer a certification, so you will not be able to use this logo. Once you pass your second exam, you can use the MCTS logo.

    Hope this is helpful.

  • Hi Satish,

    I believe that everyone who passes his exam should use his logo. I my resume i'd just refer to it and no use it. What you could use however is your virtual business card. See the "show of your virtual business card thread" on top of this forum. Very cool cards which you can indeed use to show of a little. My experience is that on resumes one does not place logos but refers to the credential.

    congrats on passing the exam ;-)

  • You cannot use MCP as a logo in your resume as it is no longer a certification. But if you use it some people might get impressed and offer you the job. So i would suggest if you really need a job you can try it. Not everyone know about it and when people see you are a MCertified Pro , you'll get something good ;)

  • If you have an MCP certification and received your card, lapel pin ect... why not put it on a resume? MCP does not exist now if you start off taking exams, but it did exist before so if you have one yes put it on your resume.

         You spent money on the training, you spent money to take the MCP exam. Then they gave you access to use their logo, use it. Anyone who tells you it's no longer a certification can go scratch themselves. MCP looks better on a resume than MCITP because most recruiters and HR staff have no clue what the MCITP certs are. That's the downside to not listing ALL your certifications on the resume. They filter by keywords all the time. Throw out MCP and you might screw yourself out of an interview one day. HR staff like most companies are not going out installing the newest toys just because you got certified on it. ____ most accounts are still on XP Pro and have NO plans of going to 7. 7 just like Vista is a failure. I would not waste one day learning/studying anything about that OS.

    my 2 cents
