These certifications are designed to validate your skills on the features and functionality of key technologies. You can show your depth of knowledge in one specific technology, earn multiple MCTS certifications to show breadth across different products, or build on the MCTS to earn a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) credential or other Microsoft Certified Professional credentials.
  • The Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) credential: This validates that an individual has the comprehensive set of skills necessary to perform a particular job role, (for example, desktop support technician, database administrator, enterprise messaging administrator, or developer related skills). Some of the MCP certifications available include Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP), Microsoft Certified Professional Developer (MCPD), and Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA). These certifications build on the technical proficiency measured in the MCTS certifications.
