Posted by Awinish on September 2, 2013
Microsoft has decided to retire Microsoft Master’s certification and training program by 1st October. For the folks, who are not aware or heard about this program, the MCM & MCA (Microsoft Certified Master & Microsoft Certified Architect) program is one of the highest certification one can achieve towards specialization in particular Microsoft technology such as Exchange, SharePoint, Lync, Active Directory etc. The reason mentioned for the retirement for MCM/MCA is technology evaluation which requires rework on the training program. For the individual, who already holds this certificates will continue to enjoy the benefits, but MS will not accept any more request for conducting new program for this certifications.
“Microsoft will no longer offer Masters and Architect level training rotations and will be retiring the Masters level certification exams as of October 1, 2013. The IT industry is changing rapidly and we will continue to evaluate the certification and training needs of the industry to determine if there’s a different certification needed for the pinnacle of our program..”
