New Certifications Coming for SQL Server 2012

Microsoft will be releasing the beta versions of the new SQL Server 2012 exams next spring (For those outside of the Good Ol’ US of A, spring starts around the 20th or 21st March so I’m assuming the exams will hit beta in March 2012.).  The following exams are scheduled for release:

70-461: Querying Microsoft SQL Server
70-462: Administering a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Database
70-463: Building Data Warehouses with Microsoft SQL Server 2012
70-464: Developing a Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Database
70-465: Designing Database Solutions for SQL Server 2012
70-466: Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012
70-467: Designing Business Intelligence Solutions with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Platform

Recertification

With the release of the new SQL Server 2012 exams comes the requirement for recertification.

Recertification will apply to Professional-level SQL Server 2012 certifications (i.e. Non-MCTS certifications) and will need to be undertaken every three years. Read the recertification policies for more information.
