What does it mean to transfer a certification?

By wanttocancel ·
Ok, I have a new job and I'm going through all the paperwork I have to sign and turn in and I saw one sheet of paper was to transfer one of my certifications. The sheet doesn't explain what this means but it does state it's voluntary. I don't want to lose access to my certification in question but I don't mind showing my employer that I have it. Can someone please explain what it means to transfer a certification?

For MS certs

This means that your certification is tied to you and the new company. This is used to improve the companies standing with Microsoft. If the company is a MS Partner or trying to become one they need as many certified people as they can get.

I don't hold any of that paper.

If there is a company assignment for them I'm not aware of it.

No, CompTia is not a company but a certification authority. Their are no company partnership stuff with the CompTia Certs.

At one point MS Certs allowed you to wave an exam if you were CompTia A+ certified or N+ certified, but I haven't heard of a need to transfer CompTia Certs to a company.
