My certification path

Hi all,

As promised a new blog with my plans on how to become MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure.

Before I can tell you what my certification path will be I have to tell you which certifications I already have.

  • Microsoft Specialist on Windows 7, configuring
  • Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate on Windows Server 2008
  • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist on Windows Server 2008 Active Directory, Configuration
  • Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist on Windows Server 2008 Network Infrastructure, Configuration
  • Microsoft Certified Professional

As you can see I am MCSA on Windows Server 2008 and will have to upgrade my MCSA to Windows Server 2016 by passing the exam 70-743 Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA: Windows Server 2016. This exam has questions from three other exams the 70-740, 70-741 and 70-742. If I pass this exam I will be one step closer to my goal. You can find more information about the 70-743 exam on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-743.aspx

The next step to reach my goal is to pass an elective exam from a list of Microsoft Azure exams. For me it will be the 70-533 Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions, because that is what fits the best with my work and work experience. More information about the 70-533 exam can be found on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/exam-70-533.aspx

If I pass both the exams I have reached my certification MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure. More information on how to get this title can be found on https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/mcse-cloud-platform-infrastructure.aspx

Hopefully you know a little bit more about where I’m at and what I need to do to reach my goal. This will not mean that after I’ve reached my goal I will stop learning and being the best in what I do, but first things first.


PS. Next time I would like to tell you more on my actual study to become MCSA: Windows Server 2016…
