With Windows 10 courses and exams just around the corner there will be some changes to the existing certifications and exams from Microsoft.
A brand new Windows 10 Specialist certification. You’ll need to pass the client exam for that. This Specialist certification will be the pre-requisite for MCSE: Enterprise Devices and Apps.
Get in quick if you want to get certified in MCSA Windows 8 as the certification and exam will retire on 30th November 2015. Already certified? You get to keep it on your transcript.
From 30th September 2015, students passing Windows 7 exams 70-680, 70-685, or 70-686 will result in a Specialist certification. Again, anyone who previously earned a Windows 7 MCSA will keep that certification on their transcript.
The Lync exams 70-336 and 70-337 will retire in November and will be replaced with Skype for Business exams. We will update our certification guides as soon as we have our servers in a line.
