Decertifications for NT 3.51 MCPs

Seven thousand MCPs with NT 3.51 titles no longer certified as of June.

Although most MCPs hear the clock ticking on their credentials against a December 31 deadline, 7,326 people with Windows NT 3.51 titles lost those credentials at the end of June.

In that count, 30,804 MCSEs lost their titles, as did 34,628 people with the MCP+I title, and 2,424 possessing the MCSE+I credential. Since many certification candidates use the MCP+I title as a steppingstone to the MCSE, most of those decertifications affected the same group of people. The dramatic difference between the count of individuals and the count of MCSEs affected is a result of many of those same MCPs achieving additional certifications that keep them in the ranks of certified professionals.
