Microsoft Pushes MCSA with Charter Membership
Microsoft to issue special-edition Charter Member MCSA wallet cards to first 5,000 titleholders.
Microsoft will issue special-edition wallet cards embellished with the phrase "Charter Member MCSA" to the first 5,000 candidates who eventually satisfy the requirements of the new Microsoft Certified Systems Administration title. The title is expected to be obtainable around Jan. 22, which is the expected release date of the 70-218, Managing a Windows 2000 Network Environment exam.
The gesture is similar to the one that the company extended to the first 2,000 MCSEs on Windows 2000.
Microsoft will send out the Charter Member MCSA kits to MCSAs in February. For details on the Charter Member MCSA and MCSA requirements, go to http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/mcp/mcsa/showcase.asp.
