Worldwide Pricing Change to Microsoft Certifications Scheduled for July 2011

Recently Microsoft Learning sent out an email to its certified professionals notifying us of an upcoming price change in certification exams. You can check out the FAQ for this news item. As of July 1, 2011 non-educational prices for Microsoft exams will go up in the following increments:

  • USD $125 to $150
  • GBP £88 to £99
  • EUR €140 to €150
  • AUD $180 to $206

For more information, see the FAQ page, however be warned that the price calculator requires Microsoft Silverlight. If you don’t have it installed, the page that your sent to to install it is actually an older version than is necessary for the calculator (3.0 instead of 4.0). Seriously Microsoft. It’s a drop down list and a yes/no button. You couldn’t just use JavaScript?

The price hike is supposedly to reflect the value that Microsoft certifications bring with them. Personally, I’m relieve that they’re till as inexpensive as they are. Not many certification exams are under USD $200 these days. If anyone wants to save $25 then they’d better schedule and take the exam before July 1. I wonder if I can cram for my 70-643 in time…
