    Hi all,

    As you may or may not be aware I actually received my MCITP & MCTS certificates back a couple of months ago and I was very disappointed with the quality of them, see here.

    But now MS has introduced Certificate Manager (within the MCP site, under Program Benefits -> Logo Builder). You can download your choosen cert either in .XPS format (which imo wasn't very good) and that is under 1mb or .pdf (which is alot better, but at approx 20mb). The quality is extremely good, alot better than the ones that MS provided and it actually states what MCTS/MCITP you are.

    For more info on this, log on to your account on the MCP site.

    "Only MCITP, MCPD, MCTS logos which have one specialization and have been built and generated are eligible for certificates."

    apparently doesnt apply to my MCDST or any of my MCP's :(

    You don't have several MCPs, you have only one. You don't get an MCP certification for every Microsoft exam you take... only your first.

    They are probably releasing the Certificate Manager now with only the MCITP, MCPD, and MCTS logos simply because they've been so far behind shipping out Welcome Kits related to these certifications. I expect that they will someday extend the functionality to include the older certifications, considering they'll still be around (and attainable) for several years to come.
