Microsoft provides a wide range of technical certifications for its products, including the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) certification. Professionals who earn this certificate must demonstrate competence using Windows Server 2003-based systems through a combination of on the job experience, formal classroom and computer lab work and passing seven written tests that cover a wide knowledge spectrum. The MCSE certificate, considered a legacy certificate, does not expire. MCSE holders can print their own transcripts and certificates, or offer logon credentials to employers or others who wish to check the certification and transcripts for themselves.
