    Does anyone know how those that achieve MCSE will be asked to renew after 3 years. I have had a look on the Microsoft website and there doesnt seem to be any information that specifically addresses this. I am contemplating upgrading to MCSA Windows Server 2012 but not sure whether to go to the next step of MCSE without knowing what is required for the renewal. If its a single exam to renew then I could be tempted...

    Hi,

    as the first renewals will not be necessary until 2015, I don't believe MS has revealed this information as of yet (if, indeed, they know what the answer is...).

    I thought as much. I will carry on with upgrading from MCSA Windows Server 2008 to MCSA Windows Server 2012. I dont really want to progress with the MCSE after until I know what is required to recertify as it comes down to the costs involved.

    Irrespective of the renewal requirements do you not think it's worth sitting once to prove your knowledge at that level - even if you don't recert going forward?

    I can see where you are coming from and I may consider the MCSE but I just feel if you are spending that much money to achieve MCSE status you shouldnt need to recertify. Thats just my opinion though.

    Presumably, the need to recertify would only come as often as there is a new OS to recertify on.

    So, really, you'd be keeping up with the MS Technology as often as was necessary. It only takes away the idea of using MCSE status on your CV if you haven't certified recently enough.

    Many other vendors do this too...

    I thought I had read somewhere they are looking at every 3 years - so just about once an OS generation.

    Yes, I believe that's right, which is why I mentioned 2015... :)

    AH it appears I have lost the ability to count. Sorry.
