ctc TrainCanada Online Support / Q: What is the difference between the MCSE/MCSD certifications introduced in September 2016 and the existing ones?
A: First, the 5 new MCSE and MCSD certifications (MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, MCSE: Mobility, MCSE: Data Management and Analytics, MCSE: Productivity, and MCSD: App Builder) are aligned to Centers of Excellence, used by the Microsoft Partner Network to identify technical competencies that are widely recognizable by both Microsoft partners and customers. Second, they do not have a recertification requirement. Instead, every year you have the opportunity to re-earn the certification by passing an exam from the list of electives. This demonstrates your investment in broadening or deepening your skills in a given Center of Excellence.
