Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) is a designation for those who have successfully completed one of Microsoft’s certification series. Candidates can be certified in various aspects of the information technology field, including Microsoft dynamics, server technologies, security, Microsoft Office, Windows and Developer tools and applications. When you have passed a certification exam, Microsoft will assign you an MCP identification number. You can use this number, along with your Windows username and password, to sign into the website reserved for certified professionals.
