Is it too late to earn a Windows Server 2003 Certification?
The strength of Windows Server 2003 in the market today indicates that demand for IT-related expertise will continue for years to come. The best way to demonstrate that you have those skills is with the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA) and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) credentials.
These certifications will not change or retire with the release of Windows Server 2008.
MCSA and MCSE will continue to be recognized and supported by Microsoft, and will be valued by organizations seeking skilled professionals on the Windows Server 2003 infrastructure all over the world. The MCSE Certification Path also provides the in depth knowledge of the server system that you need to start your career in the IT industry.
In the future, you can leverage your Windows Server 2003 certification for a shortened path to Windows Server 2008 certifications, when that makes sense for you.
Numerous new electives will help you complete your path.
For example, Exam 70-620--TS: Windows Vista, Configuring can be used as a core client or general elective in your 2003 track, and earns a standalone Windows Vista certification.
