SharePoint 2013 – Certifications Final


Hello everyone,

Today I’ll talk about the SharePoint 2013 certifications. I’ve done several posts about this, but today’s post is a link to an article written by Vlad Catrinescu.

He concatenates a lot of information about certifications, whether SharePoint 2013, Office 365, Yammer, BI and so on. For those who wish to certify, I strongly recommend it, this post is available here:

A little clarification on the MCSE SharePoint 2013, particularly regarding the MCSA. If you are MCITP SharePoint Administrator 2010 (having the two certifications administration SharePoint 2010) You can make the gateway to the MCSA by passing only the 70-417 certification. Be aware that SharePoint 2010 Administrator certifications will soon be removed. The announced date is currently July 2014 (this may change). If you want to go, do not delay!

Good reading and study!


SharePoint 2013 Certifications – MCSA : Windows Server 2012


Hello everyone,

In a previous post, I was talking about the SharePoint 2013 certification process.

To become MCSE: SharePoint, one of the prerequisites is to hold the MCSA: Windows Server 2012.

If you hold certification “MCITP: SharePoint 2010 Administrator“, you can pass the certification Exam 70-417: Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012

If like me you are looking for study material, be aware that there is a free Jump Start on Microsoft Virtual Academy site.

This course is a 2 day course speaking of a 5-day course which is a condensed of 3 5-days course … in short it goes fast! But it brings good informations!

Good study!

SharePoint Server 2013 Certifications

Hello everybody,

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. »
