MCSA: Security Recertification

Microsoft Learning blogs about the need this year to get recertified if you have the MCSA: Security specialization and want to retain it as a valid title. The certification was accredited by ANSI last month. Recertification isn't a necessity, unless, of course, you work for an organization that requires it (the blog cites compliance with ISO 17024 as a good one). In most cases, you're safe with what you've earned so far.

But if you need to recertify, all it takes is to pass Exam 70-699: Windows Server 2003, MCSA Security Specialization Skills Update.

Recertification might be a good idea for this particular title, but does it make sense for others? And who among you has recertified due to job requirements? I'd love to hear from you at or comment below.

The recert blog item was written by Liberty Munson, Microsoft's resident psycho ... ahem ... metrician. I had an e-mail exchange with her over the holidays, which I then edited into a Q&A that has some insights into the exam development process and exam security. Check out part 1, which was posted last week here, and then read part 2 here.
