Today, our HR asked me about the Microsoft certification and the respective levels. I’ve tried to explain her, but as an old saying states, “a picture is worth of thousand words” (or) “Pictures speak louder than words”, it really worked well when I’ve given her the below picture.
There is a short and sweet writeup from Microsoft site from this link, but she is more confused when I gave this link to her. In other words, if anyone writes a Microsoft exam would be awarded with MCP, ie., Microsoft Certified Professional. Then if the person writes any other exam that is related to the previous one, then they would be certified as MCTS, ie., Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist of respective combination of the papers.
