Start your MCSE Messaging Journey today!

Microsoft Technologies are evolving and having a Microsoft Certification puts your career one step forward in the Industry. As a Messaging consultant, I was happy to hear the news that Microsoft team had made a significant change in certification Roadmap for MCSE Messaging on which I am writing this post today.

If you already have a MCSA Cerification, you can now get your MCSE Messaging certification by passing only one Exam "Designing and Deploying Microsoft Exchange Server 2016". Previous certification path using Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 Exams are still valid until Microsoft team makes changes here. Also you can re-certify your MCSE certification as outlined by Microsoft.
