MCSE has been reinvented for the Cloud. The Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification helps make you indispensable to organizations moving to the cloud. Expand your skills, gain knowledge and enhance your career with the new MCSE.
These new certifications integrate cloud-related and on-premise skills validation in order to support organizations and recognize individuals who have the skills required to be productive using Microsoft technologies.
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert credential vs previous versions of the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential:
The new Microsoft Certified Solution Expert (MCSE) credential focuses on the ability to design and build technology solutions, which may include integrating multiple technology products and may span multiple versions of a single technology. It also demonstrates a candidate's commitment to remaining current on the latest technologies through recertification. The Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer credential focused on a job role and covered one version of a single technology.
To ensure that these certifications remain meaningful and valuable indicators of candidates’ skills, Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certifications will require recertification every three years.
Microsoft cloud service offerings and related certifications are continuously updated as technology updates. Recertification requirements have been added to ensure that IT professionals and developers who hold these certifications are up to date on the latest technologies.
Microsoft Certifications now validate a broader set of skills and experience required by cloud solutions across a technology solution rather than individual technologies.
Cloud computing ultimately enables IT to focus on more mission-critical activities, raising the bar of required expertise for IT professionals and developers. These reinvented certifications test on a deeper set of skills that map to real-world business context. Rather than testing only on a feature of a technology, Microsoft Certifications now validate more advanced skills and a deeper understanding of the platform.
