    I was getting worried if this would ever turn up but I got it through the post yesterday. I passed on 21/4/05 so it took about 6 weeks. I don't know if this is typical but I guess the advice is be patient and in the meantime make sure you keep your test centre print out in good nick in case an employer wants some proof.

    When I booked the exam with Prometric I spoke to a Dutch girl and now the certificate from CompTIA has arrived from Malmo in Sweden. Its all come together through a very roundabout route!

    I mean it takes a long time to make a certificate.

    First the paper has to be made by egyptian papyrus makers.

    Then the people at comptia hand write every one lovingly in caligraphy with gold ink.

    It then passes through a strict 4 stage quality control program.

    Finally it is sent out to you by a horse back courrier who sings a congratulatory song when he arrives at your door.

    So now you know why it takes 6 weeks.... :blink

    Actually, my letter carrier approached me (I was working on the back dock as a mail handler at the time) and asked me if I wanted it delivered or if he should just give it to me. As you know, it comes in a rigid, cardboard mailer and he didn't want to bend it trying to get it in my mailbox. Naturally, I took it quick as lightning and rushed it out to my car for safekeeping. :biggrin

    I was wondering when my A+ would arrive. According to CompTIA's website it was posted about 3 weeks ago.

    I just hope the guy swimming across the Atlantic with it manages to keep it balanced on top of his head, I don't want a wet one!!
