20 Years of the MCP Program

The Michelangelo virus wreaking havoc with computers worldwide was big enough news 20 years ago that CNN reported on it. The debut of Microsoft's certification program didn't even register then, but the program's longevity and impact probably makes it much more newsworthy in retrospect. Microsoft Learning is celebrating 20 years of the program by the slow reveal of 20 special events and offers over the next 12 months.

To start off, Microsoft's "Get 1, Help 1" program provides for one free exam to an "aspiring IT professional" for each exam you pass from now until April 15. The offer applies only to a specific number of exams. Details on those exams as well as how to participate in the program is here.
