No matter how you do the numbers, Microsoft remains top dog—a position that reflects its desktop and productivity market leadership, and an ever-growing share of server and database markets. Following the release of Windows Server 2003, Microsoft’s certification programs have been updated. Table 1 lists Microsoft certifications and acronyms.

Microsoft offers other certifications besides those in Table 1. These include the Microsoft Office credentials—namely, Microsoft Office Specialist, Master and Expert levels and an instructor cert. For more information on Office programs (which we don’t cover here), visit www.microsoft.com/mcp/ and follow links to Microsoft Office Specialist in the Microsoft Certifications pull-down menu (near the bottom of that list).
