The Microsoft Professional Program (MPP) at Bellevue College Continuing Education


Put your resume at the top of the pile with MPP certification. The Microsoft Professional Program was created to help students gain technical job-ready skills and get real-world experiences that help you to excel in the industry’s newest job roles. These courses will be taught by experts and feature quizzes, hands-on labs, and discussion communities. For each track a student completes, they earn a certificate of completion from Microsoft proving you mastered the skills. In addition, Microsoft offers an Acclaim badge for each professional track completed.

Throughout the year we will offer four of the most popular tracks. This is a hybrid program scheduled for the working professional. BCCE’s program gives you both in-class help from an instructor and online coursework. You will get real-world experience with these courses that feature practical demos, hands-on labs, and a final capstone project that is evaluated and approved by Microsoft. Completion of all of the courses in a track results in a Microsoft Certification and an MPP badge managed by Acclaim, the top badging company in the US.
