MCTS certificate guarantee? RRS feed

  • Question

  • i saw that MCTS exam 70-515 will be retiring. I think i'll appear for the exam in early june. BUT---what does it mean when it says that the exam is "retiring"? Will i get the certificate if i pass the exam?  and will there be any value of the certificate if i say, apply for a job?

     Please respond , bcoz i'm seriously getting no valid answers to my questions. Please help. I need this certificate....

  • All it means it that you will not be able to take the exam after it expires.  If you pass the exam before it expires you will still get a certificate and your certification will still be valid after the exam expires as certifications don't expire.

    Whether this certification would assist you in getting a job is hard to know as most employers want experience as well as certifications.
