Microsoft’s Certifications Reinvented for the Cloud - April 11, 2012

REDMOND, Wash. — April 11, 2012—
Microsoft today announced that it has reinvented its certification program to directly address technology’s evolution to the cloud.
...
...

A New Approach

The revamped program is a wholesale new approach to ensure certified individuals have the skills required to
steward an organization’s journey to the cloud. The new certifications align to real-world solutions rather than
specific products and validate a broader and deeper set of knowledge and skills. Because many organizations
will continue to have a mix of both cloud and on-premise technologies, the new solutions-based approach helps
ensure technologists can work with a range of products and services and manage a mixed environment in a way
that is seamless for users within and outside their organization.

The new certification framework has also been streamlined to three skill levels to make it easier to navigate:

  • The Associate Level comprises the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification, which provides
    a clear starting point for job seekers early in their technology career. Candidates must prove they have the required skills
    to hit the ground running. This level represents a foundation and is the prerequisite certification necessary to earn an MCSE.

  • The Expert Level comprises the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) or its developer equivalent,
    Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), and is Microsoft’s flagship certification for individuals who want to
    lead their organization’s transition to the cloud. These certifications recognize IT professionals and developers with
    broad and deep skill sets across Microsoft solutions.

  • The Master Level is the Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) certification that differentiates the select few
    from their peers and represents the highest bar of knowledge and skills validation.

Microsoft is calling MCSE its flagship credential because it is the level that most people will aspire to, says Field.
It validates an individual’s ability to design and build solutions that may integrate multiple technologies, versions
and products. These are the new kinds of skills that are needed for the cloud.

    Q. Why are you changing the Microsoft Certification Program and what are the key changes?

    A. We reinvented our certifications to maintain their market relevance as the industry shifts to the cloud.
        Microsoft Certifications now validate broader and deeper skills required to build solutions on-premise
        or in the cloud. We added recertification requirements to ensure that IT professionals and developers
        who hold our certifications are up-to-date on our continually evolving technology.

    Q. Why did you change the name of Microsoft Certifications?

    A. The names—Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE),
         Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD), and Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM)—were changed
         to better reflect the experience, knowledge, and skills that IT professionals and developers need to build and manage
         technology solutions that may include multiple technologies, whether on premise or in the cloud.

    Q. How do these changes impact my existing Microsoft Certifications?

    A. The existing MCTS, MCITP, and MCPD certifications are currently valuable in the market and will remain
         valuable as long as companies are using the technology covered in your certification. As new technologies
         are released, they will be released in the new solutions structure. Over time, the MCTS, MCITP, and MCPD
         certifications will retire and will transition to a legacy status. Legacy Microsoft Certifications will still appear
         on your transcript and will be designated as such.

    Q. Will there be an upgrade path from my current MCITP or MCPD certification?

    A. If you achieved an MCITP or MCPD certification that corresponds to a new expert-level certification,
        there will be a shorter upgrade path available to you for a limited time.

New MCSE and MCSA Certifications

Just as we got comfortable with the current MCITP certification paths that were introduced with the Windows
Server 2008 and Windows Vista certifications, Microsoft has decided to do away with it for future technologies
as we move closer to cloud computing. The change from the MCITP certification to the New MCSE Certification
comes as Microsoft introduces new ”Cloud-Built Certifications” The new certification path is based on a 3 tier
design with levels being Associate, Expert and Master. The current MCITP certifications are based on a “flat”
scheme as such which fails to correctly indicate actual skill level of the candidate.

What is changed in the new certifications?

One of the changes is that new certifications are level based. For example, you first need to first be at the MCSA
certification level as a prerequisite to gaining a MCSE certification and so on for the MCSM certification.

Second, the new certifications do expire – you need to renew them every couple of years to refresh your knowledge
and skill set with the latest technologies to keep them vaild.

The new certifications are made to be much broader and more in depth compared to the current MCITP certifications.
This will help clearly identify skill levels of different people.

Forget what you know about MCSA and MCSE

Microsoft has decided to re-invent these certifications with a whole different meaning. These no longer relate to Windows
Server System Administrator and System Engineer certifications, but rather each a level on the new certification pyramid.

New meanings of MCSA and MCSE:

  • MCSA: Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate
  • MCSE: Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert

In addition to these, there are also two new MCSD and MCSM certifications which will respectively replace the MCPD and MCM certification tracks.

  • MCSD: Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer
  • MCSM: Microsoft Certified Solutions Master


How does this effect my MCITP certification?

Your MCITP certification will still continue to be valid until Microsoft’s mainstream support for the technology ceases.
If you currently hold a MCITP Server Administrator or MCITP Enterprise Administrator certification you will automatically
be awarded with a new MCSA Windows Server 2008 as you have already passed all required exams for this.

Understanding the New MCSE Certifications from Microsoft - By Ed Liberman

Understanding the New MCSE Certifications from Microsoft   - By Ed Liberman
   
The reinvention of the MCSE has spawned a number of questions and concerns.
I have spent a lot of time researching as much information as possible on this, and have had multiple discussions
with the Microsoft Learning team to make sure that we’re sharing the most correct, up-to-date information with you.
If you’re confused about the new MCSE or have questions, keep reading.

The New MCSE & MCSA Certifications

Here is what we know:

  • All existing Windows Server 2008 MCITP: Server Administrators and MCITP: Enterprise
    Administrators have been granted the new MCSA certification for Windows Server 2008.

  • The Windows Server 2008 MCSA is a requirement to achieve the new MCSE: Private Cloud certification.

  • The MCSE: Private Cloud certification is the only MCSE certification which will be
    associated with Windows Server 2008.

  • MCITP: Enterprise Administrator will remain the premier certification for Windows Server 2008.

What exactly is the new recertification process?


  • According to a historically reliable source at Microsoft, the new MCSA certifications will
    NOT have to recertify because they are product specific.

  • According to the same source, the new MCSE certifications will have to recertify every 3 years,
    but they are looking to simplify the recertification process.

  • The explanation for creating the 3 year recertification is that the new MCSE is not designed
    to be “product specific” and Microsoft sees the industry moving to a cloud based model
    where software and services are updated frequently.


Will Microsoft have a lineup of MCSEs?

  • Microsoft claims to have an entire lineup of MCSEs which will be release in the near future.

  • Many people seem to be complaining that there is not a premier level certification which is product
    based for the upcoming Windows Server 2012.

  • Microsoft representatives are asking us to stay tuned; they believe that IT pros will all be very satisfied
    with the MCSEs they are going to release based on Windows Server 2012.

How will the new MCSE certifications affect my current certification path?

  • Anyone still working toward their Windows Server 2003 MCSA and/or MCSE can continue
    to do so keeping in mind that the exams will be retired soon. This is not new. This was
    going to happen anyway with the release of Windows Server 2012.

  • Anyone still working toward their Windows Server 2008 MCTS and/or MCITP can continue
    to do so. The only issue here is that it seems like these exams may be retired sooner than expected
    so don’t waste time, finish up your certifications on Windows Server 2008 as soon as possible.

  • The other benefit of continuing the pursuit of MCITP in Windows Server 2008 is that it will
    automatically give you a clear upgrade path to the new MCSE.
