Microsoft Certifications - where can I start? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I am SharePoint Developer with 5+ years of experience. I have more experience in SharePoint Online rather than SharePoint On-Premise.

    I have one confusion regarding Microsoft Certifications. There are many different types of certification in Microsoft like MCP, MCTS, MCPD, MCT.

    Anyone can suggest me from where can I start?

    Which is exact path for Certifications? Which exam I need to clear first and than I need to apply for other one?

    Can you please list of Certification chain from Beginner level To Export level?

    Thank in Advance.

  • Hi,

    All right?

    First you must keep in mind which category you want to act in

    Azure, Microsoft 365, SQL Server, Windows Server.

    After defined I suggest starting with certification of fundamentals, for example:
    AZ-900 exam: Microsoft Azure Fundamentals
    Exam PL-900: Microsoft Power Platform Fundamentals
    MS-900 exam: Microsoft 365 Fundamentals

    Then you will go for the certifications of focus on Administration, for example:

    AZ-104 exam: Microsoft Azure Administrator
    Microsoft Certified: Azure Database Administrator Associate
    MS-500 exam: Microsoft 365 Security Administration

    Take a look at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/browse/.

    Here you have access to all the certifications available by microsoft and the progratic content of each certification.

    If it was useful for you please mark this answer as useful.

  • Hi bhomesh,

    Microsoft certifications will certainly  give you the boost in this technological era. You just need to take following steps to get more clarity

    1.Descide which certification you want- There are 2 types of certification Microsoft certified professional and Microsoft technology associate. As you have an opportunity advance your career in the tech world or to gain benefits, like college credit, MCP certification is the gold standard..

    2. Some discount benefits are given to students.

    3. You can signup for in person training at Microsoft virtual academy.

    Lastly You will need to schedule an exam.
