Hi All,

back in 2009 I did the SQL Server 2005 Database Developer MCITP certification, but never got around to upgrading that to 2008. I'm thinking of getting certified on 2012 (if for no other reason that to force myself to learn the bits i've not looked at yet). I can see clearly from the Microsoft site that there is an upgrade path from 2008 certification to 2012, but it doesn't appear that there is anything for 2005 to 2012.
Does anyone know if there is there an exam path I've missed, or would getting certified on 2012 essentially mean "starting over", exam wise?

No multi-version upgrades.

You can either upgrade your 2005 cert to 2008 (if the upgrade exams haven't expired) and then upgrade 2008 to 2012, or you can start over with 2012.
