What happened to old certifications

Hi all,


I have two existing Blackberry certificates,



I wonder what happened to them and how I can access to the information?

I tried to search this forum but could not find any information and no information on the website as well.


Appreciate if anyone can point me to the right direction.


Thank you.

Re: What happened to old certifications

Hi there,


It appears as though you may be referencing the old BlackBerry Certification Program.  All BlackBerry Certifications granted prior to January 2008 have been expired.  In addition, all BlackBerry Certification exams related to BES 4.1 were retired as of September 30th, 2010 and are set to expire February 28th, 2011.  For further details on the retirement/expiry process, please visit:  www.blackberry.com/certification/retirement .  Here you will also find information on the equivalent BES 5.0 certifications that are still valid.


If you have any further questions about the BlackBerry Certification Program, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at: certification@blackberry.com.


Thank you,
