What’s coming for SharePoint 2010 Exams

Posted by Rubel Khan on March 3, 2010

I wanted to take a quick moment to let you know what certifications are coming up for Microsoft SharePoint 2010. (found this information from a post on Born To Learn!) Microsoft is in the middle of developing four total exams: two TS, two PRO. One TS-PRO track for IT Professionals and one for Developers.

  • 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

Look for upcoming announcements on beta exam dates soon and prep guides in the next few months. Microsoft is hoping to have the exams live in the June/July timeframe. In the meantime, here are answers to the three most common questions Microsoft get around the next wave of SharePoint exams: 

  • There are no upgrade exams for those certified in SharePoint 2007. With only one previous TS exam and one new TS exam, an upgrade doesn’t make sense.
  • As you may have noticed, PRO level or Job Role focused exams are new in 2010. The ITPro or Developer TS will be required for the corresponding PRO level exam.
  • We have no plans for separate SharePoint Foundation 2010 exams. There are no successors to the previous SharePoint Services 3.0 exams.

 Thanks for your interest!
