Helping You Navigate Microsoft Certification Changes to Role-Based Microsoft is in the process of retiring the Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate (MCSA), Solutions Developer (MCSD), and Solutions Expert(MCSE) certifications. The deadline has been extended to 31 January 2021.

Frequently Asked Questions about Retiring of MCSA, MCSD & MCSE Certifications What happens to the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certifications that I already have?

You’re retiring exams that lead to the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certification(s) that I am pursuing. What should I do?

Nothing happens to the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certification that you already have; they remain on your Microsoft certification transcript. The relevance of those certifications depends on your current (and future) job roles and how valuable that certification is to your manager and organisation, and to the work that you do.

Before the exams expire, you must pass all required exams which are a part of the MCSA, MCSD, or MCSE certification(s) that you are trying to achieve. If you pass the required exams before they expire, you will earn the certification and it will appear on your certification transcript.

Can I still achieve the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certifications before they retire on 31 January 2021? Yes, you can continue earning the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certifications as long as the required exams are still available. As we retire the exams that are part of those certification paths, you will no longer be able to earn those certifications.

My exam voucher is set to expire — what should I do? If you have a Pearson VUE certification exam voucher that is expiring between 26 March and 31 August, 2020, it will be extended until 31 January 2021.

Keeping Up With Microsoft’s Role-Based Certification:

Checking The Certification Box & Beyond MEET OUR MCT & CURRICULUM DEAN:

Vitaly Livshits

• Independent consultant with 20+ years of experience in IT

Certification is by no means a “silver bullet.” But in a highly competitive economy, getting certified helps an individual stand out and keep up with technology changes to maintain credentials.

Instead of focusing on technologies in general, the role-based certification program maps credentials to easily recognizable jobs/positions and areas of responsibilities.

Azure Data Engineer Associate Example: This certification covers many technologies, including: Azure SQL Database, Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Azure Data Factory, Azure Databricks, Azure Stream Analytics, Azure Data Lake Storage, Azure Blobs, etc.

• Most current consulting work is around Microsoft data stack, BI, overall solution architecture, cloud migration, architectural assessments, etc. • Active Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), Azure Solutions Architect Expert, TOGAF, and 15+ more Microsoft and industry certifications •At Learning Tree – Instructor for Microsoft Official Curriculum (MOC) and Learning Tree curriculum courses – Azure Curriculum Dean Learn more about changes to Azure Certifications in this blog by our MCT and Curriculum Expert Vitaly Livshits: Discovering Microsoft Azure Data AI Training Paths ›

Microsoft certifications have evolved substantially to role-based.

As you can see, it can be a somewhat overwhelming amount of technologies, although that’s just the reality of the industry today. Whereas a decade ago someone could make a living as, for example, a SQL Server DBA, today one must be reasonably proficient in many related technologies, while often also being an expert in some of them (known as “T-shaped” skillset).”
