Thank you.

I looked at Azure certification last year and allowed my exam vouchers to expire because I found that the course material and exam content was already out of date with the platform, which made it impossible to study and revise. The course material at the time (June 2016) was too far out of date to be useful.


In particular features that were in the exam were no longer on the platform.


Has this situation improved in this regard?

I actually completed a couple of these in the last 2 weeks. Some of the ones related to the MCSD are ending, and certifications are no longer available (just being able to audit the course). Such as this course:

My question is will these be re-enlisted as certifiable courses again?
This is very useful
Thanks for this information: I need to improve my Azure knowledge, this resource will be useful for sure.
That's a great "getting started with Azure" training
Yes, beginning in November 2015, we moved to a continuous sustainment model for these exams. As a result, we are constantly reviewing and updating the content on them with new publications occurring at least every two months. We are currently working closely with some internal subject matter experts to review the content covered by the exams and the items themselves. We anticipate a major refresh in Q1.

Thank You Sir / Team, for all the information. It will help me lot!!!
