Microsoft Certification Reinvented

Microsoft has reinvented its certification program to support the industry shift to cloud-computing by building cloud related and solution based skills validation into its highly recognized and respected certification program. To support the growing number of job openings in the cloud computing industry and need for qualified workers, Microsoft is introducing new cloud-related certifications that focus on using multiple technologies to create business solutions. As a result, building cloud experts who can lead companies into the cloud.
Microsoft is introducing new certifications that reflect the skills required to build and manage technology solutions – on-premise or in the cloud:
Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert Microsoft Certified Solutions Master
In the past 20 years, Microsoft Certifications have been THE tool to address the skills gap. To be relevant, certifications need to continue to be the tool needed and recognized in the market.

That’s why Microsoft has reinvented its certification program—to certify a deeper set of skills that are mapped to the Cloud and to real-world business contexts. Rather than testing only on a component of a technology, IT Professionals and Developers are now tested on more advanced skills and a deeper understanding of the technology

Stand out from your peers, and help employers recognize that you have the right skills as the industry shifts to the cloud. To keep pace with ever-changing technology, Microsoft Certifications now require that you recertify every 2-3 years.
