Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Microsoft has already extended the retirement of the MCSA, MCSD, and MCSE certifications to January 31, 2021 instead of the original June 30, 2020 date that was announced.
Now you have only 3 months (November, December and January 2021) in your hand to pass the exams and get certified!
In the continuation of the move towards all role-based certifications, Microsoft has announced that they are officially retiring all of the MCSE, MCSD, and MCSA certifications; as well as their associated exams. This means there are a total of 15 certifications, and 42 exams being retired on January 31, 2021.
MCSE, MCSD, and MCSA are being retired January 31, 2021!
As Microsoft looks to close one certification chapter, and begin a new, they are going to be retiring the Microsoft Certified Solution Expert (MCSE), Microsoft Certified Solution Developer (MCSD), and Microsoft Certified Solution Associate (MCSA) certifications on January 31, 2021.

If you on your path to earning these certifications, then you have until January 31, 2021 to pass the required exams to earn the certifications. After that date they will no longer be available to be earned. Once retired, these certifications will remain on your official Microsoft certification transcript. In fact, they will remain on your transcript for 2 years from the January 31, 2021 date; after which they will be moved to the “inactive” section of your transcript. With the new role-based exams being active for a period of 2 years once earned, this change makes sense for the MCSE, MCSD, and MCSA certifications to be in line with that two year expiration / renewal cycle.
Be ready for Windows 2019!
We at Certification Guru, already have updated our MCSA 2016 course to Windows Server 2019 administration. Since there will be no certification on Windows Server 2019, we called this course as “Administration course”, but is actually based on MCSA 2016 syllabus plus added new features from the Windows Server 2019 latest server!
