New MCSE (Microsoft Certified Solution Expert) Certifications

There are a couple of new MCSE (Microsoft Certified Solution Expert) certification available now, adding to the new existing MCSE on Private Cloud, Server Infrastructure, Desktop Infrastructure and SQL 2012. These are by specialization on Messaging (Exchange), Communication (Lync) and Sharepoint on the 2013 platform.  Go to for more details.

For existing MCITP holders (Windows Server 2008, SQL 2008, Messaging, SharePoint, Lync and Desktop), there are upgrade paths available for you to earn your new MCSE on your respective specialization platform. Basically people are going to upgrade their MCSA (Microsoft Certified Solution Associate) to 2012 platform.

To earn your MCSE Server Infrastructure on the 2012 platform, you can start from your MCSA 2012 or if you have existing upgradeable certifications, you can opt for the upgrade exams, among the upgradeable certifications are MCITP Virtualization Administrator, Enterprise Messaging Administrator, Lync Server Administrator, Sharepoint Administrator and Enterprise Desktop Administrator, for details, please go to

To earn your MCSE Desktop Infrastructure on the 2012 platform, you just need to add on an additional 2 more exams, if you have an existing MCSA certification on Windows Server 2012; for details, please refer to

For MCSE Private Cloud, you just need to complete 2 more exams if you have an existing MCSA on 2008 or 2012 platforms, this is certainly a great news for many people! These 2 exams are on System Center 2012: One is on the monitoring and operation of a Private Cloud using System Center 2012, another one is on the configuration and deployment of a Private Cloud using System Center 2012. The exam codes are 70-246 and 70-247 respectively. So don’t miss it!

It is definitely a good idea to have the required hands-on experience/knowledge on a product before you aiming at a certification exam, so you need to practice with it! For Windows Server 2012 evaluation, please go to; for System Center evaluation, go to There is also System Center 2012 Service Pack 1 in beta now, at us/download/details.aspx?id=34607

    I am trying to get the cost of the certification training list on this page (…/mcse-sharepoint-certification.aspx) but can't seem to find it. The "Live Chat" link at the side of the webpage was useless. Does anyone know where this info might be obtained without waiting days or weeks … ?
