Update to BDD cert incoming? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I noticed that the cert for "MCTS: Business Desktop Deployment" retires on October 31st, 2010. Does MS have any plans to update the cert. For instance, will there be a MCTS: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit cert? (Or does the SCCM certs replace BDD?)

    Desktop/server/application deployments are my niche, sort of speak, but I've never taken the time to get certified. I'd like to know what options I have for an MS cert, such as the aforementioned BDD cert. Of course, if that cert is going away, I don't want to waste my energy.

  • Which Microsoft exam are you referring to?

    Is this 74-139 Deploying Business Desktops with Microsoft Windows Server 2003 and Microsoft Office 2003?

    Are you familiar with Exam 70-635: TS: Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2008, Desktop Deployment? I think this exam somewhat similar to what I mentioned above and there is no plan for retirement (at least not anytime soon)

    Check the link for detail: http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-635&locale=en-us#tab1

    Hope this is helpful.
