That's right, I'm referring to certifications for Systems Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM) and Systems Center Operations Manager 2007 (SCOM): the Systems Formerly Known As SMS and MOM.

If you want to learn more about what these things do, you can visit some smart, helpful blog, like I often do.

If you want to hear about certifications we are developing to help you validate/show your skills on Systems Center, you can attend this Live Meeting we are having on October 24. Rob Linsky (or "Slinky," as Spellchecker prefers to call him, our certification program manager) will give you the scoop on what these certs are all about and how to earn them.

In advance of that, I can tell you that we are developing two Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certs and a professional-series (MCITP) certification for Systems Center, all of which will be available in 2008 (January/February for MCTS; later for the MCITP).
