Associating IT certifications with a different company - April 22, 2013, 07:47 PM

So i've got 3 IT certifications, 2 are Microsoft and 1 is CompTIA. The two Microsoft certs were gotten when interning at a company. Since then i've left that company and picked up an A+. When I begin working again do I need to re-associate those certs with each company? Can they be re-associated infinitely without affecting the certification? Reason I ask is the company I got the Microsoft certs was asking if I could associate the A+ with them so they can have that cert under their belt. I'm not completely opposed to it but if I work somewhere else it would seem that the cert has to go to the new company. Maybe someone could clear things up for me, thanks

You either have fake cents or that company has no idea what they're talking about. The certifications should be yours and yours alone. There is no "corporate association" involved.

My certs don't specify anywhere what company I was with when I got them. 2 MS certs, one Comptia cert, 2 apple certs, and 1 Cisco cert. None of them are associated with my company

Chris-they're real, 2 taken through Prometric in Ashburn and 1 through Pearsonvue at another place in Ashburn. It could be that the other company was explaining it wrong and i'm conveying it incorrectly.

Fitz- I know my 2 Microsoft certs have the company email attached to them but I have since changed that. So when I get hired somewhere else I just need to verify my certs and that's about it.

Yeah. Always use a civvie email for certs and stuff, because you never know when you gonna be switching jobs

Anyways, there's no association. Your place doesn't know what they're talkin bout

I think I might know what they're asking. With Aruba equipment, we get a discount depending on how many people we have with Aruba certifications. They track that with our registered email addresses in their system. X amount of people with our domain will give us a certain percentage off the price. That's the best I can think of.

that may be the case, I know they needed a certain amount of microsoft certs to remain a level of partnership.

+1 Certs are not specific to the company you work for. They are basically like a degree that you earned. It is yours and only yours. What the company may be asking for is permission so that they can say (either officially or unofficially) that "they" have associate"s" certified in this or that. It's basically like when companies say "we have 50 years of experience" even though they've only been open for 2 years and the oldest employee is 40. Difference is that since the degree/cert belongs to you it would be unethical for them to advertise it as "theirs" without your permission.

While you're at it, how about you check out the groupon for Cisco Certification Training for only $99. Depending on whether you want to remain a server/workstation tech or upgrade to networking. Good luck, glad to know you're valued by your company.

good information, thanks man.

On the groupon deal, have you personally tried the training or know anyone who has, how was it?

I have not and don't know. Personally I find it questionable that the courses they're offering are sufficient for a CCNP. When I was in the process of obtaining that certification 10 yrs ago there were like 5 instructor trained courses and it wasn't easy without a test environment to work what you were learning. But maybe things have changed. And either way it's only $100 and you'll definitely be able to get your CCNA with it. I bought the groupon and for $100 I'd recommend it. Not sure if it's worth $3,200 until after I log in and try it.
