Are you MCP by achieving 70-410? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am learning for the MCSA 2012 certificate. 70-410 Is the first exam I will take. I am wondering if you are recognized as an MCP by achieving exam 70-410 alone?

  • Hello,

    No (False answer)

    I have exam 70-640 (same exam for server 2008)  achieved in 2011, and I recoginize the title MCTS. It seems this is not in use for 2012 exams.

  • Hi.

    YES! After you pass any Microsoft exam, you immediately earn the Microsoft Certified Professional title and the MCP benefits.

    As it states on the following link, after you pass your first Microsoft exam, you immediately become an MCP and have access to MCP benefits:

    ahuibers - If you look at your exam transcript, besides your MCTS title, you will also see that you earned the MCP title on the same day you passed your first Microsoft exam.
    You are right, about the MCTS titles. the new Windows 2012 exams do not earn you the old MCTS titles anymore. The Windows Server 2008 MCTS titles will be retiring on January 31, 2014, as stated here: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/mcts-certification.aspx#item-ID0EBAAAAACA

    Good luck!

    Best wishes, Davin Mickelson
