What is the Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) certification?
The Microsoft Certified Professional certification is no longer available. When you pass an MCP exam, it will be added to your transcript but you may not be able to take advantage of all program benefits until you successfully earn your first certification. You can review all certifications associated with the Microsoft Certification Program on the Microsoft Technical Certifications page.
Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) certification validates IT professional and developer technical expertise through rigorous, industry-proven, and industry-recognized exams. MCP exams cover a wide range of Microsoft products, technologies, and solutions.
When you pass your first qualifying MCP exam, you automatically become a Microsoft Certified Professional and gain access to MCP benefits. You also join a community of millions of MCPs, with thousands more joining every month. After you become an MCP, you’re on your way to distinguishing yourself through expert certifications including Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE), and Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD).
MCP-qualifying exams include all of the exams required in the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), MCSE, and MCSD certifications. Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) exams and Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) exams do not qualify for MCP certification.
