I had A+ (but I think they expire after a while). I was also almost Microsoft Certified (back on XP and Server 2003) but I failed the test by like 2 questions. My boss never made me retake it and then I got my current job and haven't needed to get any more certificates since. I work as the technology coordinator for a K-12 school with 1200 users and 650-700 computers.

i know that MCTS MCSA and MCSE they do retire but if the company that you are working for still accepts the cert then it is still valid.

My official title is Technology Coordinator (as are most "tech people" in schools). I'm in charge of anything that plugs in basically. Servers and all the software, end users and all their problems, computers/laptops and all the maintenace, purchases and all the paperwork, state funding and all that headache, pretty much everything that has even the slightest thing to do with technology gets dumped on my lap.

I'd imagine their will be a rule as to how far these last, passports, driving license, only last 10years (photo renew)

GCSE expire after 4 or 6years.

Accountants also have to get rid of any work 4years or older (back to the company)

You have to either get a new license or redo a test for over 75year olds.


It all depends on what you do, best bet is to look into it.

You either make some seriously good money or you're a sucker for punishment.
