My partner-in-crime, James Senior (of Vista RTM Sounds fame...) blogged about this a while back, so no doubt 2/3's of the world's Internet using population have read it, but hopefully this will prove useful to those who may not have seen his blog.

You've heard of MCP's right?  Microsoft Certified Professional exams already exist for a huge number of topics out there, ranging from Visual Studio, XP, Windows Server and so on, but with the BIG3 on the horizon, namely Exchange, Vista and Office, surely you are wondering when the certifications for these systems are coming along, in order to get your employees trained and able?

Well, although the final details are still being finalised, we have published an advanced look at details over on the MCP site.  A brief overview can be found below:

  • 2007 Office System - 3 Developer Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) and 3 IT Professional MCTS Certifications
  • Windows Vista - 1 MCTS and 2 Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) Certifications (for consumer and enterprise support), plus a 1-exam upgrade path for Microsoft Certified Desktop Support Technicians (MCDSTs).
  • Exchange Server 2007 - a 1-exam MCTS and a 2-exam MCITP Certification are in development

I haven't finished yet!  It's like a bottomless Santa Sack....You can find early readiness materials, including new courseware and some free e-learning, over on the learning portals:

I've finished now :-)
