SSIS Certification

I'm in a company that uses SSIS, but I am an experienced oracle developer, and would like to transition.

I've researched Microsoft certification and found this:
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server-business-intelligence.aspx

466 (Implementing Data Models and Reports with Microsoft SQL Server 2012) looks like the starting point because the audience is BI developer.

The company also has Informatica but SSIS is taking over.

The starting point though seems like MCSA, which is three courses,
http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server-MCSA.aspx

so my basic goal is to learn SSIS so I can find a slot in my company here but certifications are good in the long run.

I got certified in Sql Server a long time ago, so I'm familiar with some key differences in oracle and sql server, at least from a layman's perspective.

Can I download Sql Server (2012 ?) at home to get started ?

Just looking for some basic advice.

Jim is right, the 2008 exam is combined of the SSRS/SSAS/SSIS, so I'll echo him on going to the 2012 straight, although it's hard, I've blogged about the beta exam, as I had a free voucher to take that exam..

huslayer, thank you, just what I was looking for

kelvinsparks, excellent too, thanks.

jimhorn, thanks, yes, just looking for a niche at SSIS

huslayer, ok, got it.

thanks all, just what I was looking for.
and what about 461, 462, 463 ?

http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/certification/cert-sql-server-MCSA.aspx

461 = Querying Microsoft SQL Server 2012
462 = Administering Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Databases
463 = Implementing a Data Warehouse with Microsoft SQL Server 2012

I don't do Oracle DBA work so I'm inclined not to do Sql Server DBA work, although I realize tings are not quite as difficult in Sql Server as opposed to Oracle.
