  • Hello,

    So what you were probably looking at was before Microsoft actually updated the certification pages.  They recently separated these paths to allow the certification you're working toward to be somewhat more focused. There are actually 2 certification paths for programming.  The 70-483 and 70-480 are in different MCSA paths.  The 70-483 is within the MCSA: Universal Windows Platform and the 70-480 is within MCSA: Web Applications.  Now as for the validity that you had mentioned, they're both valid certifications to earn but you won't be able to swap them out between the 2 paths. To earn either of the MCSA certifications you will need to follow the the path in which that certification exists.  Provided at the bottom are links to each MCSA certification.  Bonus note if you plan on continuing, you can earn the MCSD: App Builder by following either path.

    Pretty good article explaining the changes, also has a very helpful visual:

  • Hello ZapZap279

    I'm a little bit confused and if you might help/clarify please.

    I downloaded the current (10/May/2017) Microsoft Path of the following link https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/certification-overview.aspx, On the page 6 it is clear that you can use the 70-483 certification on both MCSA paths. According to this information one might take this course in the MCSA Web Application.

    Thanks,

  • Hi 
    According to this conversation, I am getting that you want to do MCSA course & you are confused that how can you do? If I am right so I would like to tell that there are many reputed training institutes are located. I know one of the best Mircosoft training center which name is Koenig Solutions. They offer Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA: Windows Server 2016. So don't waste your time & visit the Koenig Solutions.

  • Hey dfigueroa,

    You're correct it does look like you can take the 70-483 for either path.  As of writing before I don't remember the paths being broken down showing the exact exams.  When I was gathering info from before I had to look in the certification path to find out which exams were applicable to which path.  Even now though they don't show it within the certification path when you click Step 2 to explore the MCSA Web Applications required exams.  I think you'd be OK to take the 70-483 for either but I don't work for Microsoft so I don't want to point you in the wrong direction with this if it isn't true.
