  • Certifications are not accredited by default. An accredited college/university needs to accept these certifications as credit worthy courses and assign you credit for the appropriate course. There are some universities which recognizes these certifications but most of them don’t. Here are some college/universities which accept certification as credit.

  • Firstly,
    I agree with Rubel Khan .
    However ,for Microsoft certificates ,there is no need to hold some education level .
    if you want to apply for MCITP Enterprise administrator or mcse 2003 ,you just follow the instructions in the microsoft learning site .

    hope it useful for u.

  • I'm going to assume that by your statement "Because New zealnd is not accepting these Microsoft Certificates..." you mean you are hoping to cross-credit certifications to some tertiary qualification you are wish to undertake?

    In New Zealand there is something you could question a given instituition on, referred to by NZQA as "Recognition of Prior Learning".

    This link is to a relevant NZQA web page.

    Note, all I am saying is that you should at least be aware of this as a possibility.  My understanding is that each institution would have their own policies and procedures regarding RPL, and it may be a long shot as to whether you'd find satisfaction.  A specific institution could well not have any procedures developed for assesssing your particular certifications and experience.  But I'm simply saying, prior experience and qualifications can theoretically be assessed for suitability for cross crediting, and that is something that you should at least be aware of.
