What are the newest certifications for SQL 2012?

Microsoft has changed their certifications for 2012.  As usual, they make it difficult to understand.  I compiled all this information and put it into one table.  I hope this helps any SQL people who plan on getting a certification.

Also note these statements from their FAQ:

  • The certifications have new names: MCSA, MCSE, MCSM, and MCSD (but that last one is not relevant to SQL)
  • Over time, the legacy MCTS, MCITP, and MCPD certifications will retire
  • Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certifications will require recertification every three years
