    Default ??MCNPS?? ??MCPS??

    I recently looked at my profile on the Microsoft Partner Website and they have my certifications as:

    MCPS
    MCNPS
    MCDST

    OK, I know what MCP and MCDST stand for but what about MCNPS and MCPS??

    Anyone have a clue?

    Default MCPS is....

    MCPS;
    Microsoft Certified Product Specialists have passed at least one exam specific to a Microsoft operating system. Candidates may then "specialize" by passing additional Microsoft certification exams to further qualify their skills

    a.. Microsoft Certified Product Specialists - Individuals who demonstrate an in-depth knowledge of at least one Microsoft operating system, and have passed the certification exams that prove their technical proficiency and expertise.

    but nothing about MCNPS , I have the same problem...

    According to that document, half of those exams are retired. I know the Win 3.1 and 95 exams are gone, pretty sure the rest are history as well. Sounds a bit ridiculous, especially seeing there is nothing from M$ site about MCPS.....List of Exams from M$......

    That document is also 10 years old.......I think either you took a qualifying exam a few years back, or it's just a mistake in your profile, because I think most of us have passed at least one M$ exam, which should make us all MCPS, but we're not. I say it's a retired track that is confusing people.
