    What Windows certifications are available?

    Microsoft’s official certifications around Windows have been recently updated to encompass desktop IT fundamentals as well as specific Windows 10 scenarios around deployment, application management, and device management. You’ll find the latest information on our training and certification page, but we’re including a summary here as well for easy reference.
    Associate level: Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA): Windows 10
    Skills for your professional career and a certification that will help you get to the next level.
    Expert level: Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE): Mobility
    Expert-level Windows client certification is the globally recognized standard for IT professionals.
    Why should I get certified?

    According to a 2016 Value of IT Certification survey, on average, Microsoft certified technologists earn 15% more than their uncertified peers. What’s more, certified employees are often entrusted with supervising their peers—putting you on the fast track for a promotion.

    When you pass a Microsoft Certification exam, you’ll have also have access to your Microsoft Badge so you can share your certification online with your professional network, and highlight your certifications on your website, blog, or other professional representation.

    Hi Brink,
    If windows 10 is forever evolving with adding and removing features etc, how can we get certified with confidence, in that all aspects of windows 10 is covered?
    Thanks

    Once you learn the fundamentals, it isn't as hard to evolve along with Windows 10.

    Plus, I'm sure they'll provide updated courses in the future as needed.

    I understand your point about fundamentals, if windows 10 is to update twice a year though it could prove to be more than one exam, multiple revisions/per year? Updated exam for every windows 10 update?

    I am still under the impression that the 'control panel' is to be phased out also just for the setttings panel for example, i dare ask what next.

    Anyway, im still unsure if its worth doing beyond my windows 7 certification.

    Most of the updates will only be for added features. The basic fundamentals will still pretty much be the same.

    I doubt that the exams will be updated that often.

    That's what I heard as well, but I don't know if you still may be able to open the Control Panel using other methods yet when it happens.
