    Microsoft announces new MCSE testing procedure

    Redmond, WA

    Microsoft certifications got a badly needed shot in the arm today, with
    the announcement of a new certification procedure for it's much-vaunted,
    but recently devalued Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE)
    program.

    Beginning immediately, all existing holders of MCSE will have their
    certifications revoked pending review. Microsoft learning spokesperson
    Mandy Envious stated today that current certification holders will have
    an opportunity to provide proof of expertise with the relevant
    technology. Further information will be sent to the affected individuals
    by mail.

    Future applicants for certification will be required to provide proof of
    experience in the technology before testing will be approved. Minimum of
    one full year of experience will be required for most Microsoft Certified
    Proffessional (MCP) exams. The exceptions being Exam 70–218: Managing a
    Microsoft Windows 2000 Network Environment, which is considered to be
    irrelevant, and requires no verifiable experience, and 70-292 which has
    such a high failure rate, that two years of verifiable experience must be
    proven before testing will be scheduled.

    Microsoft also today released the new fee structure for all
    certifications. All new MCP applicants will be required to post a
    $5000.00 bond to ensure against cheating or falsification of experience
    or training. If it is discovered that an individual has cheated on any
    portion of the certification process, he or she will be stripped of any
    an all Microsoft certifications, barred from certification on Microsoft
    products for life, and forfeit the $5000.00 bond. Each exam will now cost
    $450.00 USD.

    Current holders of any MCP may apply for re-instatement of their
    certifications by posting the $5000.00 bond and appearing for a board
    review and proof of skills. Exam fees will be waived for existing MCPs.
