  • No, you cannot upgrade from Windows Server 2003 certification to Windows Server 2016 certification.

    Usually, you can upgrade only to an adjacent newer version, for example:

    from  Windows Server 2003 -> Windows Server 2008

    from Windows Server 2008 -> Windows Server 2012

    from Windows Server 2012 -> Windows Server 2016

    Sometimes upgrade exams are available only for a limited time. If you want to achieve a Windows Server 2016 certification there is no upgrade path from Windows Server 2003.

    There is MCSA: Windows Server 2016 certification still very relevant in the industry.
