The Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) credential validates that an individual has the comprehensive set of skills necessary to perform a particular IT-related job role. Formerly known as MCITP (Microsoft Certified IT Professional), MCSE certifications build on the technical proficiency measured in the Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certifications. Therefore, you will earn one or more MCTS certifications on your way to earning an MCSE credential.
MCSE candidates are capable of deploying, building, designing, optimizing, and operating technologies for a particular IT-related job role. They make the design and technology decisions necessary to ensure successful technology implementation projects.
Earning a Microsoft Certification validates your proven experience and knowledge in using Microsoft products and solutions. Designed to be relevant in today’s rapidly changing IT marketplace, Microsoft Certifications help you utilize evolving technologies, fine-tune your troubleshooting skills, and improve your job satisfaction.
Whether you are new to technology, changing jobs, or a seasoned IT professional, becoming certified demonstrates to customers, peers, and employers that you are committed to advancing your skills and taking on greater challenges. In addition, certification provides you with access to exclusive Microsoft resources and benefits, including opportunities to connect with a vast, global network of other certified Microsoft professionals.
Why should you become MCSE certified?
Here are just a few of the possible reasons:
To demonstrate to your employer, customers and colleagues that you have what it takes to plan, implement, and support business solutions concerning hardware, software, networking and/or the operating system.
To make yourself marketable to companies who identify the Microsoft MCSE certification as a requirement for interviewing with their firm. In a difficult job market, it is an easy way for employers to distinguish those who claim to know the material from those who really know it.
