If I start now for example MCSD ALM. Will I need do de recertification exam or the actual exams are update.
Carlos, you first take all of the exams required for the certification. As time goes by, these exams will be updated based on the current technology. Once the certification is achieved, then you will need to take the recertification exam before your certification expires in two years after the completion of the final exam in the certification sequence.
Christopher. Thanks. I will start my path to MSCD ALM in this month. I already have MSD Web. Thanks a lot.
@Christopher - Thanks for posting your response.
@Carlos - Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Thanks for sharing the Recertification updates.
I tried visiting the given links today and found all of them broken. Could you please verify and update at your earliest convenience.
Just checked all 5 links and they are working on my end. Please retry (perhaps, with a different browser) and let me know if you are still having problems.
Thank for your response and verifying the links.
Your advice to check on different browser worked! Something is wrong with chrome, whereas, on IE it is working fine.
Seems like a weird issue with bit.ly's URL redirection on Chrome.
