Microsoft Certified Professional is Dead!

Yes, is it. Microsoft Certified Professional is dead and replaced with the new model of certification. Starting April 2019, they introduce role-based certification. Role-based certification directly address the need of the certification in the work field. If in the past we start the MCP by learning through technology standpoint (i.e. Web, Desktop, Enterprise). today we start our journey of certification through role-based certification. You can start your journey by visiting https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/browse-all-certifications.aspx. As you can see on the link, the certification changes so much.

You can see the job-role and you can select the technology, certification type, and certification level. The role-based is the main way to obtain the certification today. Yes, you can see the old certification model like MCSE, MCSD, and others before expired in certification type. Starting April 2019, they proposed four types certification

  • Technical certification (Replacing the MCP, MTA) – IT Certification
  • Office Certification (MOS) – Information Worker Certification
  • Microsoft Certified Educator (MCE) – Educator Certification
  • Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) – Trainer Certification

The changes happen on MCP and MTA. The technical certification proposes three level of certification level fundamental (in the past we name as MTA), associate (in the past we know it as MCSA), and expert (in the past we know it as MCSE/MCSD). You can select DevOps Engineer and it will show you the certification level. MCP is dead, it is time to select the new certification!
