Top 10 IT Certifications – Verify them

I am currently hiring for a Sr. Business Analyst in Montvale, NJ and ran across a
excellent resume but in the resume the candidate mentioned in one of the section that he’s a “Certified Project Manager.. Pending”. What does that mean? Pending? Most of these exams are online and like the PHR (which I have) and you get the results immediately.
So either you are a PMP or you are not ..simple.

This got me to thinking the other certifications online which are easily verifiable

1) Microsoft – MCP/MCSC & 50 thousands others they have

2) CISCO -Cisco Career Certifications Tracking System
* The Tracking System does not track CCIE lab results.

3) Oracle Certification Program (OCP /DBA Others)
Please send an email to and place “OCP Credential Validation” in your subject line.. blah blah – Read more at Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

4) PMI (PMP) Certification Verifications

5) Verify other Security Certification Like CISA/CISM/CGEIT

6) CompTIA Certifications (A+,RFID,Network, others)

7) Verify a Red Hat Certificate

8) Sun Certifications

9) QA Certifications

10) Citrix CCEA or CCA Certification

TWO Non IT –

CPA LICENSE VERIFICATION – Cost $45 (Looks Like they are the only One Charging)

And for all those HR and Recruiting professionals out there

HR Certification – GPHR /SPHR/PHR HR Certification – GPHR /SPHR/PHR

Now you dont have excuses; Either your name is in one of this list or you don’t have a certification.
