Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)
As a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) your certification proves that you have the comprehensive set of skills to perform a particular IT job role, such as database administrator or enterprise messaging administrator. MCITP certifications are based on older versions of Microsoft technologies, and will decline in value as companies move to newer versions of our products. Take advantage of special upgrades to earn a Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification, and protect your investment in certifications.
Most MCITP certifications will be retired by July 31, 2014. Please check the retired certifications and retired exams pages for specific retirement dates. Your retired certification will remain on your transcript.
The following tables list the MCITP certifications available, by technology. Where multiple exams are required for a certification, they may be taken in any order.
