Microsoft Certified Master
The Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) is a world-class certification that produces only a handful of professionals each year. While there may be tens of thousands (or more) certified SharePoint 2010 TS or PRO professionals, there are only several dozen Microsoft Certified Masters in the world. An MCM has to attend a three-week training in Redmond and pass an extensive set of three written exams and an eight-hour qualification lab exam. Before the candidate is even accepted into the program, they have to pass an extensive interview process and pass the four core exams. The Master certification will be covered more extensively in a future article.
