    Default MCITP: Enterprise Admin title no longer retires Jan 31, 2014, moved to July 31, 2014

    In looking this up, I found two conflicting answers ....


    IT Certifications | MCP | Microsoft

    Q.Will I be able to earn a Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist (MCTS) certification for passing exams
    that count towards the MCSA: Windows Server 2008 certification?
    A.You will continue to earn an MCTS for passing Exams 70-640 and 70-642 until January 31, 2014.
    Also until January 31, 2014, when you earn an MCSA: Windows Server 2008 certification, you will receive
    the MCITP: Server Administrator certification. After January 31, 2014, the MCITP: Server Administrator
    and MCITP: Enterprise Administrator certifications will be retired.


    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.


    I called Microsoft and confirmed July 31, 2014 is the new retirement date.

    I just contacted Microsoft and was told the MCITP certifications would be retiring in July, but the MCTS certifications have no set retirement date.

    Default So now what?

    For those such as myself, who wouldn't be able to pass the necessary exams for the MCITP before July, Where do we go from here? Do we go the MCSE route, or is there another similar cert available?
