Microsoft has recently released a slew of new exams that center around what it calls Role-Based Certification. According to the site,
Role-based certifications help you to better align your skills and proficiencies with your chosen profession.
In the role-based certification paths, you can take several exams that make you an “associate” and when you take a combination of multiple exams, you become an “expert”. (For those who are students or brand new to Microsoft technologies or perhaps in a sales role, there also are new “fundamentals” exams as well, that focus on the basics. For example, you can take MS-900: MIcrosoft 365 Fundamentals, to get the Microsoft 365 Fundamentals certification.)
For Office 365, to become an Microsoft 365 Certified: Enterprise Administrator Expert, you must take:
If this looks familiar, it’s because these exams replace exams 70-346 and 70-347 which were used to earn the MCSA: Office 365 certification.
You must also pass one of several “workload” Associate certifications, listed here (with each Associate certification’s requisite exams listed):
- Microsoft 365 Certified: Teamwork Administrator Associate
- Microsoft 365 Certified: Security Administrator Associate
- Microsoft 365 Certified: Messaging Administrator Associate
- Microsoft 365 Certified: Modern Desktop Administrator Associate
If you want to study for these exams, you’re in luck! I have started publishing study guides with links to pertinent help documentation online. The first study guide is out there now:
Good luck on your certification!
