New Sure Step Certification Exam
Microsoft has released a new certification exam to replace the existing exam typically referred to as the Sure Step exam: Managing Microsoft Dynamics Implementations – MB5-858. The new exam is similar, but it’s been updated (it has the same name) and it has a different number. The new exam is:
The new exam released on September 21, 2013 and it will be the exam required to meet the Sure Step certification requirements going forward. The previous exam (MB5-858) will continue to count towards that requirement for the foreseeable future.
I haven’t taken the exam yet, but in looking at the topics covered and skills measured, it appears to be similar topics as the previous exam. For those of you who have been in my Fast TrAX classes or my upcoming one (next Tuesday), I’ve updated my class slides to reflect the new number of the exam. There is new courseware that’s come out – course 80450 – upon which the new test will be based. The course is offered as a 2 day instructor-led course, but I’m not aware of where it’s being offered at this time.
If you’re interested in learning more about Project Management, I’ll be training courses during the consultant training called FastTrAX, and I’ll shortly have a new announcement about a training opportunity that will be available to everyone.
