    Default MCSE Productivity - required MCSA confusion

    Hi,

    I am considering approaching 70-334 (Core Solutions of Microsoft Skype for Business 2015) examination. I have MCSA in Windows Server 2012.

    Requirements in regard to the MCSA needed are a bit confusing.

    On one hand, as per https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/lear...ification.aspx , MCSA Windows Server 2012 looks to sufficient:



    But the site looks to be messed up. In the step 4, they are suggesting MTA as a follow up for MCSE, lol. And there is Cloud badge for MCSA WinSrv 2012.

    Other sources* seem to be saying that MCSA in O365 is required, but perhaps something has changed in the last months/weeks?

    e.g. https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/...ertifications/


    So... anyone knows if one can be MCSE: Productivity through 70-334 only with MCSA Windows Server 2012?

    Yeah, that's kinda weird that step 4 is a step back in a way. Forget that..

    For MCSE Prod, get Server2012 or O365 MCSA, then go to step 3. The 334 will give you your MCSE

    Yeah, the new site layout and new certifications don't make it as clear what all the various options are. I am 90% sure that MCSA Server 2012 will count as a pre-requisite for MCSE Productivity.

    Nice, Piers! The view from Certification Planner solidifies this argument. MCSA Server 2012 is accepted for MCSE Prod.

    70-334 (Core Solutions of Microsoft Skype for Business 2015) - here I come! VCP-DCV6, you will have to wait a month or two longer than planned.
