While the responsibilities of IT professionals have become increasingly complex, the importance of having relevant technical skills and industry-recognized certifications has grown. To help our next generation succeed and attain necessary skills for jobs of the future, we are committed to supporting educational institutes, educators, and students.
As we continue to invest in our fundamentals and role-based learning offerings, all remaining exams associated with the Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications will retire on June 30, 2022.
Important dates and next steps:
MTA certification exam licenses can be purchased until June 30, 2021.
MTA certification exams will retire on June 30, 2022. Effective July 1, 2022, MTA exam deliveries by our exam delivery providers, Certiport and Pearson VUE, will cease.
If you’re working towards an MTA certification, you’ll want to pass the required exam(s) before they retire on June 30, 2022.
If you have an existing MTA certification, it will remain on your Microsoft transcript, even after the exams retire. It will remain in the active section of your transcript for two years from June 30, 2022; at that time, the certification will be moved to the “Certification History” section of your transcript.
