Windows 2000 MCSE Program Launched

Microsoft Corp. today announced the Microsoft Windows 2000 certification track for Microsoft Certified Systems Engineers (MCSEs). The certification is tailored to give certified professionals the ability to design, develop and manage the Windows 2000 operating system and BackOffice server products.

The Windows 2000 track will also require design skills for security, network infrastructure or directory infrastructure. To obtain new MCSE certification, candidates will be required to pass five core exams and two electives. The core skill set includes design, TCP/IP and scripting and emphasizes trouble-shooting.

Beta exams are scheduled to be available in spring 2000. An accelerated exam will be available to those who have passed all three exams for the Windows NT 4.0 operating system. The accelerated exam allows those who meet the prerequisites to replace four of the five core exams with the accelerated exam. More details about the program can be found on Microsoft's Web site.

According to a release from Microsoft, MCSEs can take advantage of a 50 percent discount on a five-day accelerated Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) Windows 2000-focused training course. Students can choose between instructor-led and online training options. MOC is official courseware designed by Microsoft's product groups to help people deploy, administer and support Microsoft products. More details and registration is available at the five-day Web site and individuals learn more about the MOC courses at the MOC Web site. -- Brian Ploskina
