    Hello, I have already completed certification for 532, 533 & 534. so I can assume now I am MCSE?
    Reason I am asking this because, I have pass results for all the 3 exams, but have not received any congratulation KIT from Microsoft (Not sure if Microsoft still sending such kits like they used to send it 10 years back).
    Please confirm.

      The process is same, if you can login with MCP details you will get access to all the details. Under the dashboard of MCP page you will see all the details.

    I am from a system admin background, and now looking for a change in Cloud platform, for Azure the system admin people should go to 70-533 and 534 respectively, now since do not have much knowledge of cloud and also powershell, would it be difficult for me to understand the concept for 70-533 and 534 also after completing the certification how much probability will I have to get a decent job ?

      Hi Abhinav,

      So understanding of concepts almost same, only the difference is how the services going to be provisioned in Cloud and how it works. So if you are already working in the same field, I don’t think so there will be any challenges. Certification you have chosen is the perfect one.

      Let me know if you need any further information.
