Do you have experience performing proactive and preventive work to increase the value of your customers’ investment? Are you able to identify opportunities to solve business problems? Do you promote organizational health in your engagements? If this describes you, why not start the path of earning the Microsoft Power Platform Solution Architect Expert certification?


To pursue this expert level certification, you must have experience leading successful implementations and an ability to focus on solutions that address the broader business and technical needs of an organization. You should have functional and technical knowledge of Microsoft Power Platform, Dynamics 365 customer engagement apps, related cloud solutions from Microsoft, and third-party technologies. In addition to having experience across Microsoft Power Platform, you should be able to facilitate design decisions across development, configuration, integration, infrastructure, security, availability, storage, and change management.


Are you ready for this beta exam? Can you:

  • Initiate solution planning and identify Microsoft Power Platform components?
  • Identify organization information and metrics?
  • Evaluate an organization’s enterprise architecture?
  • Capture requirements and perform gap analysis?
  • Architect a solution?
  • Lead the design process, and use Power Automate in your automation strategy?
  • Design integrations?
  • Identify opportunities to integrate and extend Microsoft Power Platform solutions by using Azure?
  • Design the data and security models?
  • Validate the solution design?
  • Support and troubleshoot the solution as it goes live?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions (or most of them), you may be ready to earn the new Microsoft Certified: Microsoft Power Platform Solution Architect Expert certification. It has one exam that is currently in beta: PL-600: Power Platform Solution Architect.


To receive the 80% discount*, use code PL600Sunny when prompted for payment.


This is NOT a private access code. You can use this code to register for and take the exam on or before April 14, 2021.


*The first 300 people who register can take these exams for an 80% discount! (Why beta exams are no longer free.) The seats are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. You must register for the exam on or before April 14, 2021. Take the exam as soon as possible, so we can leverage your comments, feedback, and exam data in our evaluation of the quality of the questions.


Preparing for Beta Exams

Taking a beta exam is your chance to have a voice in the questions we include on the exam when it goes live. The rescore process starts on the day that exams go live, and final scores are released approximately 10 days later. For updates on when the rescore is complete, follow me on Twitter (@libertymunson). For questions about the timing of beta exam scoring and live exam release, see the blog posts The Path from Beta Exam to Live Exam and More Tips About Beta Exams.


Remember, the number of spots is limited, so when they're gone, they're gone. You should also be aware that there are some countries where the beta code will not work (including Turkey, Pakistan, India, and China). You will not be able to take the beta exam in those countries.


Also keep in mind that these exams are in beta, which means that you will not be scored immediately. You will receive your final score and passing status after your exam is live.
