I’m an MCSA

As widely reported by others, those with MCITP certifications will automatically earn the new Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA) certification.

This evening I received an email from Microsoft Learning, congratulating me on earning my Microsoft Certification:

Congratulations on earning your Windows ServerĀ® 2008 Core certification! We hope you enjoy the benefits of your certification and of
membership in the Microsoft Certified Professional community.


Visit the MCP member site ( to download your
new logo, certificate, view and share your transcript, and access additional
MCP resources. 

. . .

Congratulations once again,

The Microsoft Certification Program Team

I’m not quite sure what the “Windows Server 2008 Core” certification is, but when I checked my transcript I see that I earned the MCSA certification today.

I only need two more exams to earn the MCSE: Private Cloud certification.  I scheduled the first exam for this Friday.  I’ll let you know how it goes.


On a side note, the logo builder on the MCP site added a new logo to profile, Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator.  I hope they get that fixed soon.  I already have one of those.
