MTA Certification Retiring*

Microsoft has announced the upcoming retirement of all Microsoft Technology Associate (MTA) certifications. Important dates to note:

  • June 30, 2021 – Last chance to purchase MTA certification exam vouchers. This includes vouchers for possible exam retakes.
  • June 30, 2022 – all MTA certification exams retire. Those working towards MTA certification need to pass the required exam(s) BEFORE June 30, 2022. This assumes exam vouchers were purchased prior to the voucher deadline.

With MTA retiring, those looking to start in IT should instead consider Microsoft Fundamentals certifications.
