About Our MCSE
Our approach to the MCSE certification training class is simple. We provide the students with the study material necessary to do well on the certification exams and we spend the majority of the classroom time doing hands-on lab work so that the student physically performs the material they are being taught.
This class breaks down into roughly 25% lecture and 75% hands-on.
Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert Certification
The Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert certification is Microsoft's newly redesigned certification for expertise in systems engineering. Based on the older "Systems Engineer" certification, the new "Solutions Expert" certification addresses the needs not only of on-site networking but also cloud computing. Through a rigorous testing procedure, the IT professional seeking MCSE certification must show competency in a number of different technologies.
The change in name reflects a new philosophy from Microsoft which focuses on entire solutions rather than on specific Microsoft products. This represents Microsoft's recognition that with cloud computing the infrastructure is already in place to implement enterprise level applications. Companies are looking for professionals to manage the transition of their applications from on-site to the cloud and maintaining them once they are there.
The MCSE certification comes in three different areas of expertise. MCSE: Private Cloud concentrates on expertise with Windows Server 2008 and System Center 2012. MCSE: Data Platform is for database administrators working with SQL Server 2012. And a second data specialty, MCSE: Business Intelligence, showcases business intelligence reporting.
For the individual, the true value of an MCSE certificiation is that it provides independent and objective evaluation of their skills. This can provide an edge when applying for a new job or it can lead to promotions within a current position.
For employers, being able to claim a professionally certified team provides a significant competitive advantage when sending proposals to new clients. Microsoft can provide a wealth of material showing that Microsoft Certified Professionals are more effective at their jobs than non-certified engineers.
Note that Microsoft considers the MCSE to be an "Expert" level certification. This means that the applicant to become a MCSE must already have obtained a Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification. For those without any certifications Microsoft offers several paths to earning the MCSE but all require multiple tests (and a significant amount of time and effort) to achieve.
Becoming MCSE certified is an endorsement from Microsoft that the bearer has the experience and the expertise necessary to build both on-site and cloud computing solutions from the ground up. The rigorous nature of the exam plus the time commitment and effort required shows potential employers that the IT professional has proven the skills that they claim on their resume. And the company whose team consists of MCSE professionals will have an advantage in competing for new business. In short, it's a win for both the individuals and for the company who hires them.
