Answers

  • Hi,

    The certification will still be valid for SharePoint 2010 but the newest certification is based on SharePoint 2013:

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/mcse-sharepoint-certification.aspx#fbid=nTemxTEp9eN

    The MCSE: SharePoint 2013 certification includes the three exams needed for MCSA: Server 2012 so to get the latest certification you can achieve MCSA: Server 2012 first and then pass the two additional sharepoint 2012 exams.

    The new certification model is no longer based on achieving a product certification by passing one exam (this was the case with the MCTS exams)

    The SharePoint 20120 MCTS certification will remain on your transcript after Jan 31 2014 but at some point most company's will move on to SharePoint 2013 the coming years and then the newer certification will have more value.

  • Hi Danny ,

    I am aware that MCTS SharePoint 2010 certifications has been retired by Jan 2014 , so if someone still want to take the same , will the certificate be issued?

    Or any idea if they are bringing in new certifications for SP 2010 , many companies are still in the migration process to SP 2010.

    Has MCPD's also retired?

    any info will be really helpful.

    Thanks

    Nandini
