I'm working on my MCSA: Windows Server 2012 certification, and I am wondering if upon completion, it's acceptable to list MCSA in my signature. Is the MCSA title by itself a title for those who've completed the entire series of MCSA certs?

Basically, does MCSA: Windows Server 2012 = MCSA Title?

Yes.

The MCSA that is current, and non-expired is the MCSA: Server 2012. MCSA = Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate, and you must complete either three new exams or a single upgrade exam which contains all of the tests in one.

The three exams if you are not eligible to upgrade are: 70-410, 70-411, 70-412

If you hold one of these titles you can take 70-417 to upgrade from MCITP / MCSA 2008 to MCSA: 2012

MCSA: Windows Server 2008
MCITP: Server Administrator on Windows Server 2008
MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008
MCITP: Virtualization Administrator on Windows Server 2008 R2
MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator 2010
MCITP: Lync Server Administrator 2010
MCITP: SharePoint Administrator 2010
MCITP: Enterprise Desktop Administrator on Windows 7

Once you have completed the full exam line, it will show up on your transcript. From there, you can either add it manually into your title OR you can go to mcp.microsoft.com/mcp (after registering with your MCP ID) and then save off a logo with all of your certifications (or the ones you select). That can also be implanted into your signature.

Furthermore, if you would like to know more about the next step (MCSE: Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert) then I would recommend checking this out: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en-us/mcse-certification.aspx

I am finishing up my MCSE: Messaging, and its a real pain.
