It may be hard to believe that it’s been well over 2 years already, but nevertheless it’s about time to recertify for the first wave of MCSE and MCSE holders, and they are desperate for recertification news. Since both MCSE and MCSD need to be renewed every 3 years, Microsoft has been inundated with questions about recertification. And, finally, they’ve given some answers!

There haven’t been too many details released at the moment, but the video posted on the Microsoft Learning Blog gives some insights.
