A new architect certification program, Microsoft Certified Architects (MCA) for SharePoint, was announced by Jeff Teper, Corporate Vice President Office Business Platform, at the SharePoint Conference.
He said those who become certified architects “will have a level of depth and training and certification that is unmatched on complex SharePoint enterprise deployments and application development.”

He said, “It really will be a way for many of you to consider becoming certified architects, but even if you're just looking to hire an individual or expertise, a credential that you can look for that shows the greatest level of depth and expertise in the SharePoint community.”
