mcse, mcsd, recertification, it certification exams, microsoft, exam preparation, examcollectionIn early 2012, Microsoft introduced the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer (MCSD) and Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) credentials. 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. The key one is: MCSE and MCSD recertification exams are coming soon, and whenever this happens, the recertification timelines will be adjusted to give candidates at least 12 months to prepare and pass the exams. So it looks like it’ll be another year before your credential expires.

The video, by the way, is the first part of a series of new videos dubbed “ACE NewsByte” (ACE stands for Ask a Certification Expert). Starring Briana Roberts and Liberty Munson (if you follow Microsoft certification news, you probably know who these ladies are!), the video series is supposed to be a more fun and dynamic way to supply Microsoft users with certification news.

So, what else is there to know about the upcoming MCSE and MCSD recertification? MCSD recertification exam will be the first one to come out, and will be released in August-September, which is basically any week now. MCSE is promised to follow shortly.

According to Microsoft certification experts, MCSE and MCSD recertification exam preparation should be about the same as for the regular Microsoft exams of this level. That is, follow the blueprint, stay on top of the latest trends. Since candidates are highly likely to be working in the industry, the exams shouldn’t be too hard for them. Microsoft emphasizes that besides the theory and hands-on skills, the exams will test the candidates’ awareness of the recent product and process changes, and what’s been happening in the field overall. So be sure to do your reading and to keep up with the news.

So, as we are all waiting for the MCSE and MCSD recertification exam updates, be sure to watch the new ACE NewsByte video and stay tuned for updates from ExamCollection ;):
