Certifications Expire? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have just finished college and now thinking of doing one of Microsoft certifications. MCITP: Database Administrator 2008 to be more precise. Most of the certifications have written "This certification will no longer be available to earn as of July 31, 2013. Exam 70-450 will retire on July 31, 2013"

    At this point I am really confused. If i start preparing for this certification and when i am ready its not available anymore what will happen then?

    Secondly if I get the certification and then it is not available anymore what happens to my certificate? Will it have no value?

    Thirdly if I then want to upgrade my certification further up will that certification allow me to upgrade?

    I would really appreciate if someone could answer these questions and clear my mind.

    Thank you
