Where to Go from Here
When you pass the 70-450 exam, you will have completed the requirements for earning the Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP) Database Administrator 2008. Progressing beyond the SQL MCITP level to the Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) SQL Server 2008 certification requires holding MCITP designations in two professional tracks. The other MCITP designations available are Database Developer 2008 and Business Intelligence Developer 2008.
The MCM process is rigorous and only open to candidates with a proven portfolio of complex, strategic IT solutions. Candidates must apply for access to the program. If selected, they attend a three week training program, must pass three computer-based tests during the training, and successfully complete the final qualification lab examination.
