Yes, recertification is required. To recertify your MCSE certification, you must pass the applicable recertification exam once every three years.
Between August 2014 and March 2015, recertification exams will be released for all MCSE and MCSD specialties. Recertification exams will cover material from the exams taken to originally earn the credential, with particular emphasis on the most recent product and process changes. Recertification deadlines for all MCSE and MCSD credential holders will be examined and adjusted, if needed, to ensure that these individuals have at least 12 months to take and pass the recertification exam.
