Microsoft MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development (70-767 & 70-768) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value
Yes, both of the Microsoft certifying exams 70-767: Implementing a Data Warehouse using SQL and 70-768: Developing SQL Data Models are retired. Microsoft retired 70-767 and 70-768 on January 31, 2021 because they retired their entire series of MCSA certifications. This wasn't like other times when Microsoft was updating the material on certifying exams -- it's no longer possible to take the 70-767 or 70-768 and there are no replacements.
Microsoft retired their MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development certification on January 31, 2021. Microsoft didn't revoke the cert, so if you'd already taken the certifying exams for the MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development (70-767 & 70-768), the certification should still be on your transcript. But if you hadn't earned the MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development before it got retired, it's no longer possible to take the exams or earn the certification.
Nothing, no certification replaced Microsoft's MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development. Microsoft retired their entire series of MCSA certifications, including MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development, because they want their certifications to reflect more broadly everything a person needs to know according to their job. There are Microsoft Certified and Microsoft 365 Certified certifications for data analysts, app developers, data engineers, and others that may replace the MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development.
Yes, this MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development training is still valuable because the content hasn't expired, just the certification. If you're one of the many IT professionals, administrators, or BI developers who needs to better understand implementing and managing data warehouses using SQL, or multidimensional data models, or even how to maintain OLAP cubes, then this MCSA: SQL 2016 BI Development is definitely still valuable.
