MCSE: Private Cloud can now be earned with the MCSA: Windows Server 2012

Erika Cravens


I wanted to make a really quick announcement to all of you, especially since you have been asking....

The MCSA: Windows Server 2012 now counts as a pre-requisite certification for the MCSE: Private Cloud certification. NOTE - it won't show up on your transcript until November 2012.

Now for anyone that already started down the path of the MCSA: Windows Server 2008 certification, you are still in luck. It still counts towards the MCSE: Private Cloud certification and it will show up on your transcript immediately.

The MCSA: Windows Server 2012 exams (410, 411, and 412; the upgrade exam 417) will be released as final on September 17th. For those of you that took the exams in beta, you should be seeing your scores right around that time.

As a reminder, the MCSE: Private Cloud does require recertification every 3 years.

I hope you find this information useful and have a great day!
