    MCSE NT4 MCSA 2000/2003 Security+ (expired: CWNA, CNA, CCNA)

    Default Number of Microsoft Certified Professionals Worldwide

    Finally a complete overview (unless someone else posted this before and I missed it):

    www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/certified.mspx

    2,149,006 MCPs in total!

    of which 18.4% is MCSE NT 4.

    As you can see in the list, the number of MCSE 2003 is very small compared to 2000 and NT 4 and despite a share going to MCSA it was clearly time for the new generation of Microsoft certs.

    How is it that there are more MCSEs for Win2000 than MCSAs for Win2000?

    I just started with my testing so I pretty much have only bothered to look into 2k3 certs

    When the MCSE track for 2000 was released, the MCSA didn't exist. It came out about 2 years later. The 218 exam which is required for the MCSA 2000, is not part of the MCSE 2000 core exams.

    Ahh thank you, I figured it would be something along those lines.

    Another reason is that there was an upgrade exam for MCSE NT 4 to MCSE 2000 (the 70-240 exam).

    Yes, and I think about 7 people actually managed to pass that darn thing.

    Just some background information for the new people that weren't around for the 240 exam. it was free, but you only had one shot at it and it retired at the end of 2001. It was equivalent to taking 210, 215, 216, and 217 at the same time. If you are talking about the MCSE 2003, it would be like taking 270, 290, 291, and 294 at once.

    Yes, or 70-292 and 70-296.

    wow less than 100,000 people worldwide have MCSE 2003? I would have guessed much more than that. I guess since windows 2000 is used so much still a lot have people have not bothered to upgrade.

    For me it has been a motivation issue. My old employer promised a raise when I completed the MCSE (NT 4). Now that I have the MCSE title and since my current employer is not offering an incentive, the motivation isn't there. That is why I started the MCSE 2000 in '00, but didn't finish until this July. I am working on the MCSA 2003 update, but I don't know if I will go for the MCSE 2003 update right away. There are other things I either have to do (some Citrix exams) or that I am more interested in (Security / Windows 200.
