This certification fill an apparent gap between the two current Technology and Professional tracks and the Microsoft Certified Architect series of certifications.

Microsoft offers three Master-level technical certifications, all of which deepen and broaden the technical skills of experienced IT professionals.

  • Microsoft Certified Master: Exchange Server 2007
  • Microsoft Certified Master: SQL Server 2008
  • Microsoft Certified Master: Windows Server 2008
  • Like the Architect series, the Master series will be open to a select group who can show some proof of readiness to create solutions and deploy technologies based on real-world experience.


    Microsoft Certified Master: Exchange Server 2007

    The Microsoft Certified Master: Exchange Server 2007 program is a three-week training delivered by recognized experts from Microsoft and Microsoft Partner organizations.

    The training is a mixture of presentations, white board discussions, and goal-based labs—covers the individual core Exchange Server 2007 technologies as well as broader architectural and operational areas, such as high availability of a messaging service, co-existence and migration, performance analysis and management, and operations. Candidates for this program complete an independent lab exercise as a part of their training, which allows them to develop and apply their learning in an environment where instructor and peer support are readily available.
