    You do wonder, then reading further and its a Microsoft Office certification, not a technical exam....

      These are credentials that are always useful to have. If you can afford it and if it is related to your field, it is definitely something to be pursued. You never know when you will need it and if it is in your field, it will look good in your resume.

        Always useful to have, but I feel they are slowly losing their value.

          The expectation still seems to be there for techies to have them. I applied for a job recently and was rejected straight away. The reason, despite my MCSE 2003 and MCSA 2008 and 2012 which was in excess of listed technical requirements I don't have either an ITIL qualification or, hilariously, Prince2 which is a project management certification. The latter 2 were not listed in the job spec on the advert and the recruitment consultant wouldn't explain why Prince2 was necessary for a technical job.

            Sounds like that company is a good one to miss out on. I imagine they would take someone who has the correct papers but no experience on the applications. Have seen that happen before and had to wonder.

              Prince2 and ITIL are closely related. Both have to do with methodology of managing, documentation, and processes.
