If you are a SharePoint person and one of your 2019 resolutions was to get a Microsoft Certification in 2019 you’re in luck, Microsoft just released the details for the two exams required to be a Microsoft 365 Certified: Teamwork Administrator Associate .
The two exams you need to get this certification are:
Alternatively, if you are already certified in SharePoint Server 2016 with the 70-339 exam, you could do the following exam only:
- Exam MS-302 – Microsoft 365 Teamwork Administrator Certification Transition
This exam is a mix of both MS-300 and MS-301, but it allows you to only pay for one exam to get this latest certification!
Let’s look at the exams and what they cover! The first exam, the MS-300 really focuses on Office 365 and covers collaboration services such as SharePoint Online, OneDrive for Business, Teams , Yammer and Stream! Here is a high level overview of the objectives:
- Configure and Manage SharePoint Online (35-40%)
- Configure and Manage OneDrive for Business (25-30%)
- Configure and Manage Teams (20-25%)
- Configure and Manage Workload Integrations (15-20%)
As you can see, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Teams take between 80 and 95% of the exam, while the other workloads such as Yammer, Stream, Flow, PowerApps and so on only take between 15 and 20% .
The second exam , the MS-301 is focused on SharePoint Server 2019 and Hybrid scenarios. Here are the high-level objectives:
- Configure and Manage SharePoint On-Premises (55-60%)
- Configure and Manage Hybrid Scenarios (30-35%)
- Migrate to SharePoint Online (5-10%)
Half of the course is focusing purely On-Premises in installing, configuring and managing SharePoint 2019, while 30% of it is on SharePoint Hybrid, so definitely something you need to master in order to pass this exam. The Migrating to SharePoint Online part is a smaller percentage than what I would have thought, but you will need to know the SharePoint Migration Tool and the SharePoint Migration Assessment Tool to get those points.
Beta Codes and Transition Exam Deadline
Update: All 3 exams are out of beta, so codes do not work any more!
To finish off, a few important details about the exam, especially if you ready this while this blog post is hot off the (Word)press! You can take the Beta exams for 33 USD Each using the following codes:
- Exam MS-300 – CODE: MS300Season
- Exam MS-301 – CODE: MS301Rocks

You can use these codes to register for the exams on or before February 13, 2019, and you must take the exams on or before February 15, 2019.
If you have already passed the 70-339 , then only doing the MS-302 will give you the certification. However, the MS-302: Microsoft 365 Teamwork Administrator Certification Transition is retiring on July 31, 2019. If you are planning to take 70-339, do it soon! Then, take MS-302 while you still can to become a Microsoft 365 Certified: Teamwork Administrator!
I have signed up for both exams , and I am looking forward to test out the Betas! Let me know in the comments if you plan to take them as well!
