    Default MCITP: Virtualization Administrator

    Hello,

    I am looking to do the MCITP: Virtualization certification, however I am a little confused on the retirement dates.

    This link here, tells me the retirement date is July 31st, 2013

    Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)

    This link tells me that the the exam retires on January 31st, 2014

    Is it just me? am I missing something?

    Thanks in advance!

    From what I can tell, the MCITP is no longer available after July 31st 2013.

    However, for the expiration date for the individual exams, there appears to be a definite conflict. The asterisk on the MCITP page states certain exams will retire on July 31st 2013, Jan 31st 2014, or has already been retired. However, in the overview section of each exam, the 70-659 and 70-693 are noted as retiring on July 31st 2013 while the 70-669 does not have an expiration notation in the overview section.

    If I were you, I would call Microsoft to clarify.

    Trust the information on the individual exam pages. But keep in mind that they can change the retirement date at any time.

    70-659 "is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2013".

    70-669 "will be retired on January 31, 2014".
    TS: Windows Server 2008 R2, Desktop Virtualization

    70-693 "is scheduled to retire on July 31, 2013".

    Gotcha! thanks for that! It's a good idea to check the exams individually.

    Just click live chat to ask a MS rep.

    AFAIK, All MCITP Titles are retiring on July 31. So if you want the title, you'll have to pass them all by then.
