How useful is the Salesforce Credential Status Request?

We all ( I mean salesforce SMEs) have at least one Salesforce Certificate and we are proud of it, right? I am, with my 3 certs. 

If you do not have even a single cert, what are you waiting for, check this post, "How to get your first Salesforce Cert", to get your first cert.

The challenging part of getting a cert is keeping it current. What good is an expired cert or an old cert?  What does that mean?

Every year Salesforce releases 3 new versions with so many new features and capabilities. How can you keep yourself current and demonstrate that you indeed know the latest and greatest?

You do that with "Maintenance Certifications" based on a specific release.

But how do you know which of your cert is supposed to be current?

The latest feature called "Credential Status Request" from the Certificates sites of salesforce helps us know what certs we need to keep up to date.

This takes the guess work and research work out of that process.

Go to the Credential Status Request", page, enter your email or webassessor username and you will a nice clean tabular report of what certs needs to be updated.

Your Credential Status:
