System Center Configuration Manager Enterprise Administrator

Today I was watching the Live meeting on System Center exams. Well I thinking that MS needs certification for Enterprise ConfigMgr Admins and here are the exams that I think that you need to get this certification and some of the reasons why.

Workstation

If a ConfigMgr Admin does not know about workstation then what are they doing working with ConfigMgr.

70-620 or maybe CHAMP

BDD

In this day and age , OS Deployment is an important part of ConfigMgr as an Enterprise Admin you must know this.

70-624 or 70-622

Server

Just like workstations, ConfigMgr Enterprise admin must know about IIS, PKI, Networks, DHPC, DNS, etc.

one of 70-640, 70-642, 70-643

SQL

SQL is such an important part of ConfigMgr both from it using it to need create reports for management. It just can’t be overlooked. .

70-431 or 70-432

Licensing

Compliancy is one of thing topic that is always over looked. As an Enterprise ConfigMgr admin you will get ask “how many of X do we have” but what is missed is ConfigMgr Eadmin need to help management not violate their licensing agreement, Therefore this need to know about this.

70-122 or CSAM

Packaging

If you follow the newsgroup, mailing list and forum, you will see that packaging is one of the more important topic.

Windows Installer Certification Program

Or

Wise Package Studio 7

Or

???

ConfigMgr exam of course

70-401

I’m sure that some people will say I have made this too hard to achieve, this maybe so but as ConfigMgr Enterprise Admin you will need know about just about everything!

BTW If the was adopted today, I would be missing a few of these myself! I would need the Packaging and Licensing exams both would be at the top of my list if it was adopted today!
