    Hi Folks,

    My employer asked me to verify MCSD.NET certifications of
    the guys we are interviewing now for dotnet positions.
    Candidates provided their MCPID's.
    But I have no idea how to verify it.
    Is there any online site which will tell what are all the
    exams they passed if i provide MCP ID??

    Can we verify in microsoft site by providing MCPID or Name
    of candidate.?

    Any Kind of help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanking you
    Kumar

    When I passed my last required exam, I received in mail an updated ID card
    that has MCP MCSD stamped beneath my name. They should also have an official
    watermarked MCSD certificate.

    During the interview, ask them open ended questions like "So, tell me about
    the last web application you worked on". Also describe a business
    requirement relating to the current project they would be working on if
    hired, and then ask them to describe how they would approach the problem.
    Not only does this weed out the pretenders, but also tests how good a
    listener they are.

    Just out of curiosity, is there a thriving black market for fake MCSD
    credentials?

    Some people will probably fake that. Kumar brought a good question. There
    should be a Web site where you can check "some" of those details. I think
    this could be tricky though because of privacy concerns. Another solution is
    to ask the person during an interview to logon to the Microsoft MCP Web site
    and show their transcript.

    Get them in a room with a pc and web connection
    got to http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcp/mcpmembersite.asp
    and ask them to access the mcp site. Then print their transcript.

    or send an email to with the mcpid to verify the
    id for you.

    Take MCSD.NET with VB.NET and C#.NET in the same time?
