I’ve already written a post about the reintroduction of the MCSA and MCSE certifications. Now that some of them are live (MCSA on Windows Server 2008 was the first, now also the MCSE on Private Cloud is available) the new certification schema has become more clear.

Seems that there on new products only this model will be adopted (so probably no new version of MCTS or MCITP certification) and those MCSE certifications are already be announced:

  • MCSE Private Cloud: already available… Is the new version of the MCITP on virtualization and management.
  • MCSE Server Infrastructure: will be the equivalent of MCITP SA or EA on Windows Server 2012. Exams are actually in beta.
  • MCSE Desktop Infrastructure: little more than the previous MCITP Enterprise Desktop Administrator, now ported on Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012. Exams are actually in beta.
  • MCSE SQL Server 2012: a new certification specific on SQL Server 2012.

Also those MCSA certifications has been announced:
