  • Hi Setu,

    No it does not mean that, Microsoft retire exams when mainstream support stops for the product.

    However that does not make the qualification unimportant.

    It show your history and also a lot of sites do not keep up with MIcrosoft upgrades.

    I went to a large site recently who were still on Windows 95, I am sure others have even more extreme examples.

    (The certificate does not get removed from your transcript)

    So do not worry.

    Kind Regards,

  • thanks Geoff for your reply. As there is a option either 70-620 or 70-624 to complete mcitp server or enterprise administrator....if 70-624 already expired then can i become server or enterprise administrator without attending 70-620 exam??

     

    Another thing is that is there any expiration date of mcitp certificate??

  • Hi Setu,

    MCITP Server Asministrator requires 70-640, 70-642 and 70-646, so no issues.

    MCITP: Enterprise Administrator requires  70-640, 70-642, 70-643 and 70-647 plus one of the following 70-620/70-624/70-680/70-681.  Basically the Windows 7 exams have replaced the VIsta exams, so again you do not need to take 70-620.

    Hope this helps and good luck.

    Kind Regards,
