    This may be a bit of an odd question but I was wondering in what format people put their Microsoft certification on their CV's?

    If you have passed 1 exam and are then an MCP do you just put MCP or do you put MCP and then the exam passed.
    If you then become say an MCDST, do you just put MCDST on the CV?

    Many thanks,

    Certifications: A+, MCDST

    It's up to you.
    I normally put them under 'professional qualifications' and usually list the full title rather than the abbreviation.
    You have to consider that your CV may fall into the hands of a non-IT person, but they will still recognise terms like 'Desktop Support'.
    I don't list the exams I've passed unless applying for a role that requires you to have passed a certain one, or be skilled in a particular technology. Even then, I'd probably mention that in my covering letter rather than in the body of the CV. It also takes up room that could be used for something else.
