As most of the followers of my blog are aware, Microsoft has completely revamped their certification paths starting in 2018, with the complete roll out starting in 2019. There is still some confusion out there in what are the different options available, what certs are available, and what are the prerequisites for each. There is some great documentation made by Microsoft out there, but it’s hard to find so I wanted to share it all out in a blog! None of those pictures were created by me, all of them are made by Microsoft, but hopefully this blog will make it a lot easier for you to find!

I am extremely happy to announce that my 17th Pluralsight course is published and this one is on getting start with using Microsoft Flow both from a user perspective, as well as an administrator! This course covers the theory , but most of the course is made of demos!

Microsoft Flow Usage and Administration

With over 130 million monthly active users, Office 365 is the productivity platform of choice for most enterprises in the world. Built within Office 365 is Microsoft Flow, a business process automation tool that allows you to streamline and automate business processes. In this course, Getting Started with Flow Usage and Administration, you will learn foundational knowledge of Microsoft Flow. First, you will learn the basic terms and concepts of Flow. Next, you will discover how to create your own workflows either starting from a template, or from a blank slate. Finally, you will explore how to administer MSFlow and set governance policies around it. When you’re finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Microsoft Flow needed to automate business processes in your own organization!

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 .

Certifications for SharePoint 2019 & Office 365 Teamwork are out!

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!

Exam Details

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:

  1. Configure and Manage SharePoint Online (35-40%)
  2. Configure and Manage OneDrive for Business (25-30%)
  3. Configure and Manage Teams (20-25%)
  4. 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:

  1. Configure and Manage SharePoint On-Premises (55-60%)
  2. Configure and Manage Hybrid Scenarios (30-35%)
  3. 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
  • Exam MS-302 – CODE: MS302TravelKLS

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.

Certifications for SharePoint 2019 & Office 365 Teamwork are out!

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 September 30th, 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!
