Deployment guy stuck at MCSA certification RRS feed

  • Question

  • Greetings! I´ve always had this problem, that MCSA/MCSE certification program does not cover my every-day work. I do lot of ConfMgr, images, GPO, Bitlocker/MBAM and some App-V, but problem with MS certificates is, that one test contains lot of questions of different areas, and I don´t play around with regular AD or datacenter, since there are server infrastructure guys for that area. My compitance has always been in ConfMgr and desktop automatization. I do have ConfMgr, MDT and 70-410 certs, but I got stuck at 70-411, because it contains lot of areas I don´t do daily or those technologies are not in use (NAP, RRAS etc.).

    In large organizations people tend going deep-dive in spesific technologies and solutions, and it seems for me, that these certifications covers only the job where one specialist works with entire infrastructure from desktops to servers, hypervisors and deep Active Directory.

    I would love to see specific cert tests to specific areas, ConfMgr and MDT certs have been good in that.

    Any advice to go forward?
