This post is the reference of the certifications in the area of BI. It started with the MCSA (which stands for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate) SQL 2016 BI Development and was extended to the more advanced MCSE Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert: Data Management and Analytics.These certifications were replaced by the role based Azure certifications. In this post (https://www.mmertens.eu/2022/07/azure-role-based-certifications-for-data/) I describe the two possible transitions, where I’m on the “Scientist” path with DP-100 and DP-500.
This post is the reference of my certifications in the area of Machine Learning. It starts with the “old” MCSA (which stands for Microsoft Certified Solutions Associate) Machine Learning. With the switch to the role based certifications for Azure I firstly achieved the AZ-900 Azure Fundamentals, then the DP-100 Azure Data Scientist Associate.
In the years 2017 to 2019 Microsoft provided several professional education programs, and named them “Microsoft Professional Program for …”. I took part in the programs for Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, which had some overlap. The programs were set up as online courses through EDX, an online university. There were about 12 courses for each program. Typically you would need from one to four weeks per course, so overall it took nearly 2 years for me to do this besides my normal work.
