Frequently asked questions

Question Why did Microsoft discontinue the Microsoft Professional Program?


Three years ago, we launched the Microsoft Professional Program with one mission: to help you build the technical skills you need to succeed in emerging jobs.

Since then, we’ve heard from many of you about how you’ve applied your new skills to become more impactful in your current work and gained more recognition from your colleagues.

That’s why we’ve decided to take the best of the Microsoft Professional Program and apply it to a program where you can earn a technical certification when you complete your coursework. Why?

  • Certified new hires reach full productivity sooner and find more opportunities for advancement.
  • Certified employees earn 15 percent more than those without certification.
  • Employees with certifications are nearly 20 percent more productive.
