The MCTS includes the MCP, however the MCP is the more well known
name. I usually tell people that I'm an MCP, and if they ask for more
information I give them the list of certs which I hold (currently
MCSA, MCDBA, MCTS (x3), MCITP (x2))

I may be mistaken, but I was of the opinion that MCP and MCTS are mutually
exclusive. You can certainly be both at the same time, but they are for
different things. MCTS is for the new generation of certifications, MCP is
all of the prior. MCP is for life, MCTS will expire when mainstream support
for the technology expires. For example, if you are MCTS in Vista
configuration, when mainstream support for Vista is dropped, the MCTS will
be expired. However, if you have MCP from say one of the NT or 2000 exams
(both of which have dropped mainstream support), you are still an MCP.

MCP is given upon completion of any Microsoft certification with the
exception of a couple of the Office certifications.

Well, Trika would differ with that statement. The following is from her
blog and I tend to believe her...
Are you a Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) if you earn a Microsoft
Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS)?

a.. Yes, in that you become part of the Microsoft Certified Professional
community, with access to the MCP site, benefits (Knowledge Base, etc).
b.. No, in that you do not earn a credential called "MCP."

Humm,

According to the Microsoft web page
(http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mc...uirements.mspx)
"Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) candidates are required to
pass one current Microsoft Certification exam* that provides a valid
and reliable measure of technical proficiency and expertise.". I'm
thinking that someone may need to correct the Microsoft site.

The * means "A current exam is any exam that has not been retired."

Yes, it does say that. And, if you had actually read the entire page I
quoted, you would have seen that the phrase you quote is outdated content
that will be updated sometime, but (apparently) not any time soon as that
was pointed out to Trika in the 1st qtr 2008 and has yet to be updated.

MCP is not going forward any more. For Vista, Server 2008, related products
and beyond, MCP will not be issued. Certified individuals will still
receive an MCPID, as well as access to the MCP site, but not a cert called
"MCP".
