Today I will talk about studies! And yes, new SharePoint version means new certifications!
SP2013 certifications are scheduled for February 2013! Note that I’m not talking about developing certifications , there is still no information about those.
The grail bears the name « Microsoft Certified Solution Expert : SharePoint»
SharePoint 2013 certifications are as follows :
Exam 70-331: Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013
Exam 70-332: Advanced Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013
But then, having these certifications is not enough to be qualify under Solution Expert. For this, you must also be « Microsoft Certified Solution Associate : Windows Server 2012».
To have access to this title, two paths are possible:
1) You hold one of the following titles:
MCSA : Windows Server 2008
MCTIP : Virtualization Administrator
MCTIP : Enterprise Messaging Administrator
MCTIP : Lync Server Administrator
MCTIP : SharePoint Administrator
MCTIP : Enterprise Desktop Administrator
In this case you just have to pass the following certification:
Exam 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012
2) You do not have one of the titles mentioned above you will have to pass three exams:
Exam 70-410: Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
Exam 70-411: Administering Windows Server 2012
Exam 70-412: Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services
After all that you will be« Microsoft Certified Solution Expert : SharePoint»!
Watch out! This certification will be repeated every 3 years…:
“ The MCSE: SharePoint certification requires candidates to show continued ability to perform in this technology area by completing a recertification exam every three years. »
