FAQ

Following the release of SQL Server 2014, Microsoft has made far-reaching changes to the current SQL Server certifications.

Q. Will the MCSA: SQL Server 2014 certification be affected?

A. Currently there are no plans to offer a new MCSA SQL certification. Certifications for SQL server 2014 will only be offered at the MCSE level. SQL Server 2014 features are advanced and best suited for the MCSE.

Q. How will this affect the MCSA: SQL Server 2012 certification?

A. You’ll still be able to get the MCSA: SQL Server 2012 qualification. Its associated exams (70-461/70-462/70-463) will remain without any alterations. The MCSA: SQL Server 2012 will also remain as the prerequisite for both MCSE certificates.

Q. How does SQL Server 2014 affect the MCSE: Data Platform and MCSE: Business Intelligence certifications?

A. The MCSE: Data Platform (70-464/70-465) and MCSE: Business Intelligence (70-466/70-467) exams were updated In April 2014 with SQL Server 2014 topics. The exam numbers will remain the same.

Q. I’ve already started working towards my SQL Server 2012 MCSA/MCSE cert. How will the changes to Microsoft’s Official Curriculum affect me?

A. Those currently studying for their MCSA: SQL Server 2012 have nothing to fear. The MCSA and its associated exams will not be changed. Though you may now find it referred to as MCSA: SQL Server.

The MCSE: Data Platform and MCSE: Business Intelligence were updated April 2014 to include SQL Server 2014 content. If you achieved your MCSE credential before this, you won’t be tested on SQL Server 2014 or future releases until your next recertification exam.
