Track Your Transcript

Dan Wallace, an MCP in the Dallas area, wants to warn other MCPs to make sure their transcripts reflect the current state of exams they’ve passed.

Dan Wallace, an MCP in the Dallas area, wants to warn other MCPs to make sure their transcripts reflect the current state of exams they’ve passed. Wallace noticed that his transcript didn’t state that he’d passed a particular exam, which he’d taken a couple of weeks earlier. Wallace sent multiple email messages to mcp@msprograms.com and finally received a response that he’d hear from somebody within 48 hours. Two days passed without a word. So he called the training and services number, 800-636-7544. The person he spoke to there suggested faxing in the results from the exam, which he did. Two weeks later, his transcript showed updated information.

Wallace believes his problem may have resulted because he used a solution provider number instead of his usual social security number when registering for the exam. When he passed the test, he received a congratulations letter from Microsoft on becoming an MCP, even though he’s been an MCP since 1996.

Microsoft recommends that MCPs check their transcripts a few weeks after passing a new exam. That’s done by going to the MCP secured site and choosing the Transcript Tool, which allows candidates to print a copy of the current information.
