MCITP Certifications demonstrate advanced competency in a particular IT job role.
Microsoft Certified IT Professionals (MCITPs) have the skills and qualifications to successfully perform a particular IT job role, such as Database Developer. The MCITP builds on the skills measured in the MCTS, therefore, you will earn one or more MCTS certifications on your path to becoming a Microsoft Certified IT Professional.
Beyond the abilities to install, configure, and troubleshoot Microsoft technologies, MCITPs can make the organizational and technology decisions necessary to ensure successful Microsoft product deployments and implementations.
Where the specialist-level MCTS certificate validated your skills using a specific Microsoft technology, the professional-level MCITP certification confirms your skills in an entire IT job-role, across multiple Microsoft and non-Microsoft technologies.
