  • Hello Chris,

    MCSE Server Infrastructure would be the "standard" server(/client) certification, the MCSE Data Platform is only about SQL Server. For both of them you will be taking 5 exams, after finishing the "first three" (e.g. 70-410, 70-411 and 70-412 for Server Infrastructure) you will be an MCSA, there is no need be an MCSA before starting the MCSE certification.

    I hope this helps answering your questions, if not don't hesitate to ask.
