    Hi Gunnar,

    Thanks for your comment and your interest in the SharePoint MCM program. With regards to pre-requisites and experience, the requirements for the two remaining SharePoint 2007 rotations (R4 and R5) will remain consistent with the previous rotations. However, moving forward, the requirements for the SharePoint 2010 rotations will focus on SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2007 experience.

    Congratulations to all new masters! 🙂

    I checked out SharePoint MCM requirements. One thing seems there weird to me – why candidates must have experience on content management server? MOSS2007 has been there almost three years already. Is there any hope that conditions change in near future?
