Microsoft is getting ready to issue 2 exams and a new certification for Office 365 professionals, in addition to already existing certifications in this field.
There are 2 exams already exist:
And 2 new exams are to be issued at February 17, 2014 to provide Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate: “MCSA Office 365” certification:
Skills being measured at the exam 70-346 are following: Provision Office 365, Plan and Implement Networking and Security in Office 365, Manage Cloud Identities, Implement and Manage Identities by Using DirSync, Implement and Manage Federated Identities for Single Sign-On (SSO), and Monitor and Troubleshoot Office 365 Availability and Usage.
The exam 70-347 also covers the following topics: Manage Clients and End-User Devices, Provision SharePoint Online Site Collections, and Plan for Exchange Online and Lync Online; which seem to be some easier questioning comparing to 346’s topics.
To prepare yourself for these examinations you may attend Microsoft Official Courses “20346A/B: Managing Office 365 Identities and Services” (5 Days) which are also to be available soon.
And issuing “MCSA Office 365” as mid-level certification tells us that “MCSE Office 365” is also a plausible future then.
God Jul folkens! Happy New Year!
