SharePoint 2010 Certifications

And another short post for today – this time relating to SharePoint 2010 Certifications.

There has been a lot of speculation and wonder in the SharePoint community about what the 2010 certification path would look like for the next release. Well, the good news is, as of about a month ago, some information started to come out from Microsoft, from several outlets, but, my information came from the Born to Learn blog at Microsoft Learning. Specifically, this post:, as well as the SharePoint Training site at Microsoft:

The 4 exams that are coming along for the June/July timeframe are:

· 70-667: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring
· 70-668: PRO: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator
· 70-573: TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development
· 70-576: PRO: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications

Two TS and two PRO exams, one set for IT Professionals, and one set for Developers. One great thing about the new generation of exams to be noted however, is that not only do these get you your MCTS (Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist) credit, but, they will also earn you your MCPD (Microsoft Certified Professional Developer) credit as well.

Can’t wait to plop down in front of a computer at Prometric and take these once they are available!
