Microsoft Certification Programs
Microsoft certifications demonstrate the skills and expertise to implement business solutions using Microsoft technologies.
Microsoft provides the core business and productivity programs that organizations rely on. Regardless of your industry or career path, a clear understanding of Microsoft technologies (and the certifications to back up your knowledge) will help you accelerate your IT career.
In April of 2012, Microsoft Learning launched the latest iteration of its Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) program. The new generation of Microsoft certifications reflects the increasing importance of cloud-computing competencies, while still validating the skills to build on-site business solutions using Microsoft technologies.
The Security Certified Program offers two certifications to put you on the road to a more rewarding career.

MCITP certifications build on the technical proficiency measured in the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications. Therefore, you will earn one or more MCTS certifications on your way to earning an MCITP certification.
