    There aren't really any around anymore.... Java, .NET, and C# are where development certifications would actually pay off for you. There's no VC++ ones that's offered anymore that I'm aware of.

    A lot of places look more at projects and experience than the do at certifications for C++.

    I agree with masnrock, C++ certifications does simply nothing to get job. Practical experience and technical expertise does everything.
     If you want to get a job, then dont go for certifications, perhaps try to get exp.
    I can give you the list of good books, materials, if you tell me your level of knowledge.

    All the best
