MS Ups Its SharePoint Cert Coverage

Ed Tittel Ed Tittel Profile: Ed Tittel

As of today (July 12, 2010), Microsoft has 4 more new SharePoint exams on its slate, two each that count toward Technical Specialist (MCTS) and IT Professional (MCITP) credentials:

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

SharePoint is gaining momentum and marketshare as a Web-based collaboration plus content creation and management system, and these exams should help to raise its credibility among enterprises and organizations interested in putting it to work as part of their day-to-day IT infrastructure.

There are a total of 6 MCTS exams on SharePoint currently available, and the two described in the preceding paragraph for MCITP also represent the complete collection of MCITP SharePoint certs currently available as well. Four MCTS SharePoint exams, plus substantial, documented OTJ (on-the-job) SharePoint experience is necessary to qualify for the SharePoint track in the Microsoft Certified Master (MCM) program. So far, a “SharePoint flavor” for the Microsoft Certified Architect (MCA) credential is still under development.
