    No there isn't. The new MCITP etc. for Vista and 7 have certifications that expire when the product reaches end of life (which is different to their 2000/2003 equivalents MCSA/MCSE etc. which never expired).

    Once the product has reached EOL, arguably you should be on the new type of certs anyway.

    ok that makes sense thank you, A+ 2011 only lasts three years which is why I asked.

    Comptia have changed that in the last 18 months or so - before their certs would last a lifetime, now its only a few years. TBH, if I passed a qualification, no matter when it expired, I'd still be putting it on my CV - I haven't come across many people who would be fussed if one had expired or not

    true true, my CV mentions dates that i passed certification, not certifications that are still within expiry (although they are all valid)
