Number of Microsoft Certified Professionals Worldwide

Updated: July 19, 2007

The Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCP) program was established in 1992. To date, more than 2 million people have achieved Microsoft Certification worldwide.

Based on customer feedback, we have updated this list to include both the credential and the number of professionals on each release or certification. Because the MCP program is constantly growing, you may not see your most recent certification listed. We will add accurate data as it becomes publicly available. These numbers are current as of June 27, 2007.
