Microsoft Learning Seeks Candidates for New Exams


Microsoft Learning has three new certification exams available in beta.Most certification experts agree that there's a high degree of value in having new certification exams "tested," so to speak, by IT professionals prior to releasing them for consumption by the general public. One popular method of achieving this end is to designate a "beta" period during which interested parties can take the exam (and report possible bugs and glitches) early at a reduced cost. Microsoft Learning frequently arranges a beta release period for its new certification exams, and there are two currently being offered. We're late to the party on both of these, so you'll need act quickly if you are both a) intrigued, and b) just now getting the news. For those with experience in DevOps, Microsoft Learning is offering a new exam for Azure developers and administrators, AZ-400. On the Microsoft 365 front, there are two new exams available for experienced enterprise administrators, MS-100 and MS-101. The registration window on the Azure beta closes on Sunday, whereas the Microsoft 365 exams will remain open until Dec. 14. Both exams are available for 80 percent off, so you can save big if you're ready to take action quickly.
