Ready to take your Microsoft Fundamentals knowledge to the next level or you are journey to attain professional Microsoft Certifications? You’ve come to the right place!
The normal journey with certifications is to start off with the basics i.e. your Fundamentals certifications and work your way up the ladder. For the Power Platform, there’s a list of Associate Level certifications including the PL:100 Power Platform App Maker certificate which offers you a deep dive and practical knowledge of the Power Platform.


The app maker builds solutions to simplify, automate, and transform tasks and processes for themselves and their team where they have deep expertise in the solution domain. They are skilled in key technical business analyst tasks such as data modelling, basic UX design, requirements analysis, and process analysis.


Why should I write Certification Exams and get certified?

There are several reasons why you should go for certification Exams. Having a professional certificate allows you to:

  • Validate your skill.
  • Boost your confidence.
  • Complete your profile.
  • Make you more competitive, and so on. 


As beneficial certification exams are, not everyone can afford them as they come at a cost. In this article, I will be sharing an opportunity to access certification vouchers for FREE if you are a students.

The purpose of the PL:100 exam is to measure the following skill:

  • Design business solutions (which is 20-25% of the exam)
  • Analyse and visualize data (which is 10-15% of the exam)
    • Creating and consuming Power BI Dashboards
    • Describing AI Builder models
  • Create business solutions (which is 60-65% of the exam)
    • Manage Power Platform components
    • Create model-driven apps
    • Create canvas apps
    • Configure Dataverse
    • Create Power Automate flows
    • Create Power Virtual Agents chatbots in Teams


But how do you prepare for the exam and display the above skills during the exam attempt. To address we have an Exam Readiness slide deck and Study Guide to help you breakdown and walk you through on what is covered within the exam and help you prepare for your exam!

Once you have went through the slide deck, you can then start going through the learning resources/materials by completing the PL:100 Power Platform App Maker learn modules.
