Join the Elite Group of Microsoft Certified Solutions Master Professionals

Microsoft is pleased to announce, effective July 1, 2013, training will no longer be required to obtain Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) certification.

This policy update is applicable to MCSM: Communication, MCSM: Directory Services, and MCSM: SharePoint programs. MCSM: Data Platform and MCSM: Messaging programs will continue to support the training optional model that has been in place for several years. 

Although training will no longer be required to obtain MCSM certification, Microsoft strongly encourages candidates to continue to attend training to satisfy gaps in knowledge, build relationships with other expert-level peers, and to better prepare for the corresponding Knowledge and Lab Exams that are required for each MCSM certification.

How do I register for MCSM exams?

As each certification track releases exams in 2013, candidates will have the option to register directly with Prometric Test Centers.

For additional questions on certification, exams or training, please contact the Advanced Certification team.
