70-461 without certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everyone.

     

    I am currently a university student with a great interest in SQL. As a result, I intend to take the Querying

     qualification Microsoft SQL Server qualification (70-461). I believe passing this exam alone is not sufficient to get a certification, but I am not really interested in becoming a DBA later, I can see myself as an SQL developer instead. My question is, even though it does not give me a certification, is there still a way it can be placed on my CV so that the employer can track it down/check its validity? Do I get an ID or some sort of code after passing the exam, which can be used for others to look my results up online?


    Thank you,

    All the best,

    Balint

  • You can list that you passed the exam on your CV and then also list the credentials for accessing your shared transcript at Microsoft Learning.  The transcript shows both the exams that you've passed and any certifications that you've earned.
