Is Microsoft going to delay the exam retirement date of MCITP: 070-647 ?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Previously, it mentioned that 070-647 will be retired on 31-July-2013 in its exam link

    http://www.microsoft.com/learning/en/us/exam.aspx?ID=70-647#fbid=OIjsJZRYOcF

    However, in the past few days, the following link was modified to say that 070-647 is going to be retired on 31-Jan-2014, which is correct?

    Its seems that Jan 31 2014 is a valid date.

    Hello Danny,

    Are you sure that after  31-July-2013, Microsoft would still issue MCITP:Enterprise Administrator certificate to peoples who had taken exams after 31-July-2013 and before 31-Jan-2014?

    Are there any officials or Microsoft staff could respond and clarify the discrepancy on their different web pages about certification and exams?

    Thank you for you response, but, i'm still uncertain.

    This exam is scheduled to retire on January 31, 2014.

    However, in the 070-643's exam page, it is still 31-July-2013.

    and in the MCITP certification page, it is still 31-July-2013. then WHY EXTEND the exam retirement while MS is not going to issue MCITP after 31-July-2013.

  • Totally annoyed with this.  Could not get a straight answer from Microsoft training folks.  Extend the MCITP for both Server 2008 Certifications, not just Enterprise!
