SharePoint 2013 Certification

9 comments January 14th, 2013

Things are definitely changing…people have always deemed the SharePoint certifications easy to get through… Well, for all of you who wanted it to be harder to obtain… Microsoft heard you… Check out what it takes now:

Step Title Optional Training Required Exams
1 Installing and Configuring Windows Server 2012
2 Administering Windows Server 2012
3 Configuring Advanced Windows Server 2012 Services
4 Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013
5 Advanced Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013

 

Luckily, if you’re already SharePoint 2010 certified, you’ll only have to take three exams:

 

Step Title Optional training Required exam
1 Upgrading Your Skills to MCSA Windows Server 2012 417 417
2 Core Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 331 331
3 Advanced Solutions of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013 N/A 332

This MCSE certification requires you to show continued ability to perform in your chosen solution area by completing a recertification exam every three years.

Remember when it was just one test to become a MCP, just 2 to become MCITP, and no re-certification every 3 years? Those were the days. =)

Start studying people… 😉
