The MCP credential is for professionals who have the skills to successfully implement a Microsoft product or technology as part of a business solution in an organization.
Microsoft wants to offer certification that helps assure MCPs are experienced and qualified to help with their IT problems. But traditional multiple choice tests don't always do a complete job of testing IT professionals' ability to perform practical, real-world tasks end to end. So the Microsoft Learning team has developed a new system of testing that evaluates on-the-job skills of an IT pro.
