Editor's Note

IT and Training professionals were confronted this month with
changes that have been made to the MCT And MCSE certifications.
Microsoft announced this week that that they are due to scrap
the Windows NT4 test. MCSE holders will need to sit the Windows
2000 test in order to retain their qualification. A deadline has
been set for 31 December 2001. Ultimately anyone who does not
complete the test will hold worthless certifications. MCT's will
need to complete certain curricular in order to retain their
certification by 30 September 2002. Also this week, Nivo
International have announced the release of core and expert exams
for Word and Excel XP.
