Decertifications for NT 3.51 MCPs
Seven thousand MCPs with NT 3.51 titles no longer certified as of June.
- By Dian Schaffhauser
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.
