Standardizing Common Product Exam Title Models

Discussion in 'MCITP' started by Wayne Anderson, Apr 27, 2007.

  1. I was wondering if there was any way to lodge a request at Microsoft for a
    learning credential and site review to enforce standardization of
    nomenclature accross exams. In particular example are a few from the MCITP
    track:

    From http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcitp/default.mspx

    • Technology Specialist: Windows SharePoint Services 3.0, Configuration
    • Technology Specialist: Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services 3.0,
    Application Development

    If you look at the full list from which I excerpted only a couple above. Is
    Microsoft part of the cert title or not? Some have it, others dont. It
    would strike me as redundant given that the "M" in MCITP or MCTS stands for
    microsoft anyway.

    It would just be nice that if the MCTS/MCITP model is truly going to become
    the full next generation of credentials that Microsoft adhere to a common
    naming convention to aid in ensuring that the list of credentials is
    accessible. At the present time, that's one of the biggest challenges I see
    the new certifications having: that there are so many of them that there is
    no longer a clear must-have or must-look-for credential similar to what the
    MCSE or so forth has been in past years.

    While this allows for a more granular credential search, I feel that MSFT
    has an affirmative duty to ensure that any steps that can be taken to
    simplify the understanding and standardize the nomeclature of the
    certifications should be done in order to ensure that credentials provide
    maximum value to both candidates and to the Microsoft organization.
