I'm sharing an invitation I've just received...

On 24 October, 2007, two LiveMeeting sessions will be held to review plans for Microsoft Systems Center Certifications, specifically certifications for Systems Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM) and Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM). The details on these LiveMeeting sessions are as follows:

From the blog listed in the invitation I received, initial plans indicate that two Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certs and a professional-series (MCITP) certification for Systems Center are in development. Estimated availability for these new certs would be during the first quarter of calendar year 2008.

  • What would be of keen interest to this blog's author:
    What will the certification include in the way of configuration management? What about model-based config management?
     
  • What would also be of interest to this blog's author:
    What kind of tweaky-geeky DCM or SML or XML stuff would be considered in SCCM 2007 cert exam questions?

I plan to suggest (to these cert development folks) a review of content at the SCCM-DCF website for exam fodder, including a recent webcast from the SCCM product development team about Desired Confirmation Management (SCCM-DCM) and Configuration Baselines in SCCM 2007: http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/configmgr/evaluation/configmgmt.mspx
