Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP)

Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) is a Microsoft certification that requires successful completion of qualifying exams. As of February 2019, the MCP certification can no longer be obtained by passing a single exam; rather, Microsoft is transitioning toward role-based certification programs. These roles (or technology focus areas) include developer, administrator, solution architect and functional consultant. The requirements for earning the MCP certification vary based on role.
