SAFe 4.0 Retirement Coming Soon!

SAFe Updates

Hello Folks,

Just want to give you a quick update that SAFe 4.0 will be retired on September 30, 2018. As we committed, we’ve supported this version for over a year following the introduction of SAFe 4.5 in June 2017. Here are the important end-of-life dates to keep in mind:

  • 8/31/18 – The last day to purchase SAFe 4.0 courseware. This is also the last day for SAs and SPCs to upgrade from SAFe 3.0 to SAFe 4.0 via the upgrade path.
  • 9/30/18 – SAFe 4.0 retires. This is also the last day to teach 4.0 courseware and upload 4.0 course rosters.
  • 11/30/18 – The last day to take any 4.0-related certification exams.

Please note that all SAFe 4 Certifications remain valid. If you have other questions about the retirement of SAFe 4.0, please visit the SAFe Versions FAQ page for answers, or send a note to if your question isn’t answered there.

Stay SAFe,
