Microsoft Certified Masters Program Update and Special Offers

Microsoft introduced the Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) programs in June 2008 to provide seasoned IT Professionals the opportunity to enhance their design, build and troubleshooting skills (previously available only to Microsoft employees) and to provide a credential that would allow them to differentiate themselves from other seasoned experts.  Training for this credential involves a 3-week immersion into server technologies led by top subject matter experts and industry-renowned instructors. Originally, MCM programs were only available for Exchange Server 2007, SQL Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 Active Directory.


New Offers:

The Microsoft Certified Masters program is definitely at a different level than the MCTS and MCITP. It is also very expensive. However, for those that need the advanced skill level that this program offers, it is well worth it. From Microsoft’s web site, the latest numbers worldwide for MCMs are:

Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 79
Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 146
Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 21
Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007 15
Microsoft SQL Server 2008 2
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 39
Windows Server 2008 Directory 48
