I realize the expiration of credentials have been extended by 6 months, but what is the renewal path for the Azure SA Expert credential? Does/will it require passing both the current exams? Will there be an upgrade/transition exam?

 

Thanks

@SebastiaanR - We will have away for you to extend your certification without taking exams. More information will be coming later in the year. Once announced you will have enough time to complete the requirements and your certification wont expire during that time.

Thank you.  I have six that may expire next year, along with two AWS. I need to stop this certification loop for a bit.  

@allisonkraker 

Please keep me in CC also

Mine is not on renewal still have a year, but would be great to know

Hi team,

Is there any progress in this so far?

Cheers!

@allisonkraker Is there progress on the extension of certs?
