    Just a quick question about the MCITP retirement policy. After the cert is retired does that mean you loose the right to say your MCITP certified at Server 2008 level or can you still use it on your CV?

    Cheers

    I believe that retirement only means that you cannot sit exams for that cert. In the case of certs that expire, it would mean you could call yourself an MCITP until the expiry date.

    You have sat, and obtained that certification. If there isnt an expiry on the cert, then you have that certification for life. They cant take it away from you just because they dont want people sitting it any more.

    I believe that you can still use the MCITP/MCTS but have to state that it is retired, last I heard MS was sill undecided about this. MS will let us know closer to the time.

    Cheers for the quick reply guys. I read the policy and to me it was pretty vague to say the least. I hope it is the case that your certified for life at the level you take it. I would be pretty cheesed off if you lost the cert which is what has always put me off Cisco certs.

    When MS was introducing the new range of certs (MCTS/MCITP) and said that they would expire, there was a big uproar, they changed it to retired and people accepted that more. We shall see hat happens :)
