When logging into the Prometric Candidate History pages I noticed that I passed the first Windows 7 MCITP exam. I’m not sure if passing this exam gives me a new credential. According to this page in the Microsoft Learning Catalog it should give me a new credential : Microsoft Certified IT Professional (MCITP): Enterprise Desktop Support Technician 7. But for now, it’s not showing (yet) on my transcript.� For now you still need pass the HDI exam to earn the MCITP Desktop Support Technician 7 credential, but according to this blogpost at the MSLearning blog things can change :-).
UPDATE : Just received an update from one of my sources over at Microsoft Learning. The results of the 71-686 are already at Prometric. Prometric is processing the results as-we-speak and they should pop up on your Prometric Candidate History within 2 weeks from now!
