MCPD: Windows Developer 4
Microsoft Certified Professional Developer: Windows Developer

MCPD Overview

The MCPD certification provides you, your peers, and employers with unbiased proof of your developer skills using Microsoft Visual Studio, the Microsoft .NET Framework, and other development technologies. In addition, MCPD certification provides you with access to exclusive resources and benefits, including opportunities to connect with a global network of certified developers. MCPD certification requires two to three years of relevant experience and a commitment to remaining current in best practices and technologies.


MCPD certifications will not be updated for future versions of Visual Studio. In most cases, upgrade exams will be available to shorten your path from an MCPD on Visual Studio 2010 to the corresponding new Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) certification. Most exams on Visual Studio 2010 and all exams on Visual Studio 2008 are scheduled to retire on July 31, 2013. However, your MCPD certification will remain valuable as long as companies are using the relevant technologies.

Upgrade exams to transition your skills and certifications from Visual Studio 2005 to Visual Studio 2008 are scheduled to retire on July 31, 2012.
