Two more certifications, including one on MDT 2008

I mentioned in my MCSA is now MCITP- Server Administrator post that I needed to take exam 70-647 to complete my MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certification.  I completed that one in October, so that completes my Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista certification updates.

This week, I took the newly-released 70-635 exam, titled “TS: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008, Desktop Deployment”.  This one covers various topics around Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, and Office deployment.  Considering that this is the stuff I work with every day, passing the exam wasn’t much of an issue (although sadly I didn’t get anywhere close to a perfect score).  I received my confirmation today:

I didn’t realize that the MCP website lets you build you own custom logos for your certifications.  Here’s one for my Windows Server 2008-related certifications:


But this is the one that I like more:


The 70-635 exam is really focused on partners who need to get certified for the Desktop Deployment Planning Service (DDPS) program, but anyone can take it if they want.  Prove that you know Windows and Office deployment, MDT, and ConfigMgr 🙂
