Details on Azure Certification

Copper Contributor

Hi There,


I am looking for achieving Azure certification. Certifications details on are not clear as many of the certificates shows retired. 


Can anyone help in understanding which certification should be done first as an Azure developer.

If you are just starting out with Azure then it would be wise for you to take the AZ-900. This is an optional exam, you do not have to take it, but its good if you are just starting out with Azure.


Now as you say you are an Azure developer, so you will want to take the AZ-203. After you pass this one exam you will earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Developer Associate certificate.


You can stop here if you like or go on to the expert level certificates.


I have a video on the Azure exams you can view it @


Hope this helps. Any issues please let me know.
