Microsoft Streamlines Technical Certifications

Microsoft has announced a streamlining of certifications.

The Born to Learn site contains the full details,


The five new expert certifications are:

  • MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure - focusing on skills validation for Windows Server and Microsoft Azure
  • MCSE: Mobility - focusing on skills validation for Windows Client and Enterprise Mobility Suite
  • MCSE: Data Management and Analysis - focusing on skills validation for both on-premises and cloud-based Microsoft data products and services
  • MCSE: Productivity - focusing on skills validation for Office 365, SharePoint, Exchange, and Skype for Business
  • MCSD: App Builder - focusing on skills validation for Web and Mobile app development


To earn each of these credentials, you must first earn a qualifying Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification and, then, pass a single additional exam from a list of electives associated with the corresponding Center of Excellence.   

Every year, you need to take an additional exam from the list of electives, demonstrating your investment in broadening or deepening your skills in a given Center of Excellence to retain the certification.  Each time you earn the certification, a new certification entry will be added to your transcript.
