The new Microsoft Certification program is now based on job roles to reflect the reality the IT Professionals are facing in the market. It also was designed to match the technology updates which have been happening more and more frequently.

IT Pros can earn a technical certification that shows they are keeping pace with today’s technical roles and requirements. An opportunity to skill up, prove their expertise to employers and peers, and get the recognition and opportunities they’ve earned.

Microsoft has certification paths for many technical job roles. Each of these certifications consists of passing a series of exams to earn certification. Microsoft certifications are organized into three levels: Fundamental, Associate, and Expert.

  • Fundamental Certifications: Recommended start. Ideal for individuals just starting in technology or thinking about a career change.
  • Associate Certifications: Two years of comprehensive working experience. It is helpful to have related Fundamental certifications but is not required.
  • Expert Certifications: Two to five years of deep technical experience. Many Expert certifications require a specific Associate-level certification.
