    Important clarification about Windows 7 certifications

    Got quite a few reactions from you guys about our MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7 announcement yesterday: it seems many of you are concerned and about the requirement to acquire an HDI certification in order to achieve this credential.

    Please note that this is not the only MCITP credential for Windows 7—there’s also an MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7, which does not include customer service skills in among the skills it validates (and therefore does not have an HDI component).

    So for those of you who want a well-rounded technology+soft skills credential, there’s MCITP: EDST7, and for those of you just want the Win7 piece, there’s MCITP: EDA7

    Read about it here.

    Just a side note, from previous notes the MCITP: EDST is a level 2 cred, while the MCITP: EDA is a level 3 cred.

    Hadn't noticed this post, repped for the extra info.

    I think we'll see a lot of people going the MCITP: EDA7 route, the cost of the HDI component combined with its lack of industry exposure will turn people off the EDST track.

    Yeah, I really don't see the point of picking up the HDI cert.
