Expired MCSE 2012 Server Infrastructure to MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure

    Question

  • My MCSE 2012 Server Infrastructure certification expired a few months back.  Now I would like to obtain what I understand to be the replacement for that certification which is the MCSE: Cloud Platform and Infrastructure (correct me if I am wrong).  Does my expired certification still give me credit in Step 1 from the article linked below?  Or will I be required to take the renewal test to get my 2012 cert re-upped before it will give me credit toward the new certification?

  • If you have the MCSE 2012, then you also have the MCSA 2012 (which you got when you passed exams 410, 411 and 412, which are part of the MCSE track). Contrary to the MCSE, which expires, the MCSA doesn't expire. Therefore, you still have the MCSA, which can be used as one of the options in step 1.
