In my younger days I qualified as an MCSE in Windows NT4, back in those days an MCSE stood for Microsoft Certified Engineer, I then got one in Windows 2000 and then Windows 2003.

I also certified as an MCSA in Windows 2000, back in those days an MCSA stood for Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator, I then got one in Windows 2003.

Then Windows 2008 came out and everything changed, I passed some exams and became a MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist), so was this the same as an MCSA in 2008, I assumed so.

I then passed some more exams and became an MCITP (Microsoft Certified IT Professional), so was this the same as an MCSE, again I assumed so.

But then a few weeks ago I got an email from Microsoft telling me I had become an MCSA in 2008, so MCSA now stands for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate and appears to be the equivalent of the MCITP.

To get this certification I had passed the exams stated on the following link

So we now also have the MCSE which now stands for Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert, now based of the exams I’ve passed I will only need one more (exam 246), but the course is still beta so let’s not worry. See the link below for details.
