The new MCSE certification no longer has a recertification requirement. Instead, the achievement date signifies how you keep up with changes to the technology.
Every year you have the opportunity to re-earn the certification by passing an exam from the list of electives thereby demonstrating your investment in deepening and broadening your skills. Each time you pass a certification exam a new entry is added to your transcript and never expires.
Microsoft certification exams are performance-based requiring you to complete specific tasks during the exam to prove your knowledge and understanding of the technology rather than memorizing information.
The best way to prepare for a Microsoft certification exam is by having hands-on experience with the technology.
ONLC Training Centers is a Microsoft Gold Learning Partner. We provide authorized Microsoft training that will help you prepare for certification exams.
Training is available in two delivery formats:
You can get both from ONLC!
Once you've passed a Microsoft technical exam or earned a new Microsoft certification you will receive a digital badge.
Your digital badge allows you to easily share the details of your skills in a trusted and verifiable way. You can share your digital badge to popular online destinations, such as LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter. It can also be embedded in a résumé, your personal website, or an email signature.
Anyone who views your badge can select it to learn about your skills and verify authenticity.
