Certifications on track!

So far this year it has been quite busy!
But for my own sake I’m trying to learn as much as I can, and therefore I had laid some plans regarding certifications test ahead. Since Microsoft has released Windows Server 2012 and has reintroduced MSCE and MSCA titles I have a whole lot to deal with there, and I’m trying to learn more about Citrix as well since I find it interesting but my main goal is more security related, so I have a long term goal of getting CCIE Security and CASP. But back to those plans! I have already started the planning and have ordered two tests.

1: CCA for XenServer A26
2: CCAA for XenApp 6.5 A22
3: CCA for Netscaler 9.2
4: Lync MCTIP 70-665 (
5: CASP Comptia
6: Windows Server 2012 70-417 for MSCA Windows Server 2012
7: Windows Server 2012 70-413 and 70-414 for MSCE: Server infrastructure
8: Windows Server 2012 70-415 and 70-416 for MSCE: Desktop infrastructure
9: Office 365
10: CCNP Secure
11: CCNP Firewall

Let’s see how many I manage to do this year Smile
Something I love about the computer industry is that it is always evolving new stuff is happening all the time, new technology is released all the time and there is always something new to learn.

New certifications from Microsoft

Microsoft has updated their certification site with a WHOLE load of new certifications for the release of windows server 2012.
If you now go to the MCSE site on Microsoft’s site you can now see new exams for Windows Server 2012 & Windows 8

New exams that I can see so far is.

70-410  Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012 (September 04, 2012(In development)

70-411  Administering Windows Server 2012 (September 04, 2012(In development)

70-412 Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services September 04, 2012(In development)

If you take these 3 exams you will then get the MCSA Windows Server 2012.
Of course if you have the MSCA Server 2008 you can upgrade your title with the upgrade exam

70-417 Upgrade your skills to MSCA Windows Server 2012

When you have the MCSA Windows Server 2012, you can then upgrade this title with the MCSE Server Infrastructure.
Which consists of

You need to take 5 exams.

Of course there is also an MCSE Desktop Infrastructure track.

Which consists of the

70-415 Implementing a desktop infrastructure
