When creating a new Site Collection or Web Application by PowerShell, we have the option to apply the Site Template Directly. However, for PowerShell to accept it, you must give it the Template ID (EX: #STS1). Here is the SharePoint 2013 Site Template ID List for PowerShell

As you probably know, I have been blogging a lot about the SharePoint 2013 MCSD Path. Why? Because Microsoft still did not release any official information about it!  Even if the 70-488 and 70-489 have been made publicly available on June 20 2013, Microsoft still did not release the full path!

MCSD Website

2 days after the Exam 488 and 489 went live, still no official word of the SharePoint 2013 Certification Path

Previously, I had almost official information from J. Seymour that the 70-486 will be the mystery 4th exam that Microsoft never announced.  Even if the comment J. Seymour made on my blog on January 31st was 100% correct until now, I could not confirm it until Microsoft Learning announced it on their website.   Today I want to announce you that even if it’s still not there, we are 1 step forward.

On the Official Microsoft Certification Planner,  we now see the 70-486 exam as a requirement to the SharePoint 2013 MCSD.  Even if this is a step forward, the exam names for the 70-488 and 70-489 are still not correct,  therefor I cannot say it’s a “finished product” , however it is one step forward!

Here is a Screenshot of the Certification Planner taken June 20, 2013!

I will also include a Screenshot of the Certification Planner taken January 22, 2013 to see the difference.
