    Yeah, they use to send out lapel pins with every new cred you earned. Stopped a couple of years ago.

    I've got a little collection of them.
    Horrible sharp little things.

    The only place I can imagine them being worn is in Microsoft HQ.

    They seem to like things like that...

    :rolleyes:

    Didn't you get any of magnetic ones? They were better (not by much), however I could use them if I ever did go to a Star Trek convention :biggrin

    I believe you still get ITIL ones. Certainly you did when i passed mine. You get invited to send off for your free badge when you get your certificate. I think i am a green badge? Strangely i never sent off for mine...did consider it for humour...

    The trainer we had did wear his ITIL Service Manager badge...

    I requested my ITIL badge, not so much because I had to have it, more along the lines of "I paid x amount for the exam, I'm going to get everything owing" :)

    I know what you mean, sadly my imitation gold Sun tie pins really don't do justice to the £150 exam fee...:cry:

    Does anyone actually wear tie pins anyway ?
