    So today I passed another exam: MTA Windows OS Fundamentals (98-349) with a score of 76%. Didn't even learn that much, let out the last few days. :P

    By the way, I have a question.. The last few days I saw people on the internet promoting their MTA cert ALONG with the Microsoft Certified Professional cert. Does this mean I will automatically be MCP as well? Since I've read that both MTA and MOS are excluded from the MCP credential. However, I know a guy at my school got an MCP cert after passing his first MTA exam a year ago (January 2014). Makes me really wonder how this works. It would be great to be MCP of course.

    I'm not able to see my certificate at the moment, since I've done it through Certiport. So it takes a few days until it will show up on my transcript. And if I'm true, MCP should be there as well. But again, I could be wrong. xD

    You may just have to give them time to collate the information but I have to be honest and say I don't know for sure if the MTA will give you an MCP as well.

    Well I wouldn't be surprised if I won't become MCP. In fact, yesterday I've read that Microsoft has changed it now; in order to become MCP you'll need at least MCSA or anything comparable. Both MTA and MOS are excluded. Still find it a little weird that it has been possible to get the MCP credential when passing any MTA exam (not even that long ago).

    Anyway, still waiting for my certification showing up. The passed exam already has shown up at my transcript and at the home page of the MCP Member Page, but the cert should come available soon as well (at least, I hope so!). :P

    Do you actually get a physical certificate? Someone told me you get an email with a reference number which says you pass?? Not sure how reliable they are as a source of information though tbh.

    Just like with MOS for example, there indeed is a physical certificate. In fact, it has just shown up! :)

    Have ordered it as well. :)


    I haven't received an reference number at all. Think this 'process' after passing an exam depends on where you live. Or maybe the organization where you take the exam (Certiport or Pearson Vue). Could that be it?
