Prove your expertise in managing and implementing Microsoft private cloud computing technologies. With Windows Server and System Center, you will build your Microsoft private cloud solution to optimize IT service delivery and gain the automation and flexibility you need for your IT infrastructure, now and in the future.
The Academy’s MCSE Private Cloud 2012 Boot Camp is a combination of the following official Microsoft courses:
Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012: 410 (exam 70-410)
Administering Windows Server 2012: 411 (exam 70-411)
Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Service: 412 (exam 70-412)
Monitoring and Operating a Private Cloud with System Center 2012: 10750 (exam 70-246)
Configuring and Deploying a Private Cloud with System Center 2012: 10751 (exam 70-247)
If you didn’t earn your MCSE: Private Cloud certification prior to February 1, 2013, Exam 659 won’t count as credit toward this certification.
If you’re already certified as a Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Enterprise Administrator or MCITP: Server Administrator, you only need to complete steps 4 and 5 above to earn your Private Cloud certification.
This MCSE certification requires you to show continued ability to perform in your chosen solution area by completing a re-certification exam every three years.
