    Default Can you add Security onto an existing MCSA?

    I currently have A+ Net+ and want to take 270, 290, and 291 to get MCSA before they start retiring test. I am also planning on taking the Security+ after that (because I want it before next year when it expires).

    If I get MCSA, and then do Security+, do I get MCSA:Security?

    No, you need two security exams: Microsoft Learning: Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator (MCSA)

    Interesting that they added ISACA and (ISC)2 certs. That's definitely a recent change.

    Ah, the 2 exams. Thanks. Now assuming I have got security+ and the other exam. Then I get the MCSA:Security?

    For info, you don't actually need any MS Security certs to get the MCSA:S - i.e. S+ and CISSP (or CISM/CISA in any combination) will work.

    270 (or one of the other client exams), 290, 291 and two security electives = MCSA:Security
