Virtualization Exams
Today I read a nice blog post on the MS Learning blog. The post is about the three new virtualization exams which will enter the beta stage soon. If you want to attend one (or all) of the virtualization beta exams all you need is a SME Profile with the correct expertise! The post is a bit mysterious about the date on which the exams will be available. That was the reason for me to contact some friends of mine over at MS Learning. They were able to make some things clear, but didn’t give me the exact dates.

Ehh…Desktop Administrator 7

Earlier this week I blogged about my new MCITP Certification. I didn’t notice it right away, but Freddy Fuentes tweeted about it on November 20th. When he checked his transcript the exam showed up as the PRO: Windows 7, Desktop Administration and in the list of certifications it said : MCITP Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7. Oke..nothing strange I would say. But when you log on to the Certificate Manager the Enterprise Desktop Administrator 7 just said MCITP : Desktop Administrator 7 – Charter Member (Yeah..the Charter Member part was oke, but the Enterprise part is missing).
Freddy mentioned it to @MSLearning via Twitter. @MSLearning only responded with a short ‘interesting…I’ll find out_’._ Too bad it hasn’t been fixed yet, so when he told me he didn’t get any response yet from @MSLearning I decided to contact Krista who immediately took action (Thanks Krista!). She will blog about the issue later today on the MSLearning’s Born2Learn blog!
Krista told me she would look into the _wrong certification name issue_ and she will have it fixed! When it’s fixed I’ll update my blog post. Krista also published a blog post about it at the MS Learning blog.
