Update on Exam Retirements For Microsoft Certification, Microsoft Exam list for Retirement Schedule 2018 

To keep the Microsoft Certified Professional program current,
Microsoft Learning continually monitors trends and then revises exams and certification requirements to keep pace with technology changes.
Our goal is to provide you with several months’ notice of upcoming exam retirements.
We review our certification program plan, the psychometric performance, and our upcoming exam list every quarter and make decisions about what to retire and when so that we can ensure people have the most up to date certifications reflecting the latest in Microsoft technologies while at the same time ensuring that MCPs can be certified on the technologies they use every day.
