@paultrenter , thank you for posting this, this was news to me.
I've opened a Learning case with Cisco and will let you/the community know what I find (if the exams are being updated/retired but the certification will remain, if they're getting rid of the exams and the certification, etc.).
If it helps, they may extend it again at that time (like they did here moving it from October to February).
Also, just to be clear, that's the last date that you can take the test, not when the test expires. So if you took it today for instance, your credit for it will not expire for several years, not in February.
Hi @paultrenter , it looks like they've changed direction, the certification is still available, but now it looks like there are new exams (or at least numbered ones) that are required for new people to take the test?
I'd be curious if anyone has anything they can share if they've taken the new tests vs. the previously numbered ones.
Any one had written the latest exam 500-442,500-443,500-444,500-445 exams?
How is the exam pattern is it based on
or is it based on DCUCCE ?
