    Completely incorrect

    Achieving MCITP: EA grants MCSA: SA as well.

    MCITP: EA is a vastly superior title as it focuses on design and "consulting" in the 647 and the 643 is a very difficult exam. 5 exams versus 3 (if not upgrading) is going to set you apart in interviews.

    I'm still on the fence about this.

    The extension is nice...I am 2 exams away from the EA, one from SA...both give you 2008 MCSA, one more exam (70-417) earns the upgrade to 2012 MCSA, then 2 more exams from there for 2012 MCSE.

    Decisions, decisions.

    As far as I'm aware the MCITP:SA is from tomorrow no more, it's only MCITP:EA left available with MCSA 2008 being given for taking either 70-646 or 70-647

You must meet all of the requirements for a certification prior the certification retirement date in order to earn that certification.

    Does this change mean that the MCSA 2008 has been taken off the chopping block for now?

    From what I understand, that particular title is around for the foreseeable future and will not expire in Jan 2014. It is the other titles that do. MCITP ones. I am no expert though and I am sure someone will confirm for you.

    I hate to tell you guys this but since the beginning of the MCITP certifications, MS said publicly that the exams would retire after the exams for the version after the next OS became available. Guess what? Server 2012 R2 is RTM and exams that cover it are starting to be rolled out. This is not new information.

    No, It's July 31.



    Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP)


    The MCITP: Enterprise Administrator on Windows Server 2008 and the MCITP:
    Virtualization Administrator on Windows Server 2008 R2 certifications will be retired on July 31, 2014.
    You must meet all of the requirements for a certification prior to the certification retirement
    date in order to earn that certification.

    It looks like the American page has been updated but the British one hasn't been updated. Sorry for the confusion!

    I know this is an old post, but just wanted to know, MCITP:SA 2008 does retire July 31st, 2014?

    Working on MCITP/MSCA 2008, I figure two more exams, why not??
