Beta codes are sold out.  Thanks for your interest in our beta program! 

As Microsoft Azure technology evolves, so does the Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification. In keeping with that evolution, we’re excited to announce new versions of the exams required for this certification: AZ-303: Microsoft Azure Architect Technologies (beta) and AZ-304: Microsoft Azure Architect Design (beta).

 

Is this the right certification for you?

As a candidate for the Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification, you should have subject matter expertise designing and implementing solutions that run on Azure. Your responsibilities include advising stakeholders and translating business requirements into secure, scalable, and reliable cloud solutions.

 

You’re on the right certification path if you have advanced experience and knowledge of IT operations, including networking, virtualization, identity, security, business continuity, disaster recovery, data platform, budgeting, and governance. You should also have expert-level skills in Azure administration and experience with Azure development and DevOps processes.

 

Ready to prove your skills on Azure architecture?

Be sure to take advantage of the discounted beta exam offers. The first 300 people who register for and take one of these exams on or before August 10, 2020, can get 80% off market price! This applies to both exam AZ-303 (beta) exam and exam AZ-304 (beta), for a total of 600 discounted exams. Remember that you can take Microsoft Certification exams online.

 

To receive the discount, register now. When you’re prompted for payment, use the associated code. This is not a private access code. The seats are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that neither of the beta exams is available in Turkey, Pakistan, India, or China.

Already on the journey to Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification? Mix and match your exams

If you’re ready to take AZ-300 or AZ-301 now, go for it. These two exams remain in market until September 30, 2020, at the regular price. To compare them with the new versions (AZ-303 and AZ-304), check out the skills outline document on each exam page.

 

If you just started the preparation journey, consider refocusing your studying efforts on the new exams—AZ-303 and AZ-304.

 

If you already passed either AZ-300 or AZ-301, you could take the new version of the complementary exam. The following exam combinations are valid for earning Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification: AZ-300 and AZ-301; AZ-300 and AZ-304; AZ-301 and AZ-303; or AZ-303 and AZ-304. (To see which exams you passed, check your transcript.)

 

Regardless of which of these exam combinations you take, when you pass, you’ll have earned your Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification and it will be valid for two years.

 

If you already hold the Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification, please note that we’re extending—by six months—all certifications that expire through December 31, 2020. If you want to prove that your skills are up to date right now, you can use EITHER discounted (passed, of course!) exam as an opportunity to extend your certification’s expiration by two years.

 

Beta exam conditions

Want help preparing? Check out my blog post on preparing for beta exams. Remember that beta exams are scored once the exam is live, so you won’t know if you’ve passed for a few weeks. 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, check out  The path from beta to live.

Why the discount code is not applicable for India region? Does India region has the provision to enroll for beta exams?

Occasional Visitor

Just passed my AZ-301 two days ago but I'll go for it. Thanks for the opportunity @Liberty Munson 

New Contributor

Will passing either of the exams qualify towards the renewal of the current Expert certification, or would one need to pass both exams for the renewal?

Thanks

Occasional Visitor

Registered and Booked! Looking forward to the challenge and experience! @Liberty Munson

To save people going through the registration process, AZ303DonSuperStar is fully used. would be useful if someone from MS posted an update when they were used up...

Microsoft

@mukularora89: To protect the integrity of our certification process, we have decided not to deliver beta exams in countries with the highest rates of piracy. As a result, you cannot use the code in those countries.

 

@SebastiaanR: as noted in the post, if you have the architect cert already and pass one of these exams, your cert will be extended by 2 years.

@Liberty Munson Hi, The voucher Z303DonSuperStar is fully used up. I am in the United Kingdom and unable to use the voucher. Is it possible to make a few more vouchers available for AZ-303? Cheers

Microsoft

Nope. The vouchers are limited and on first come first served basis. In the near future, we will posting info on how to join our SME database. People who do get access to a different code if they meet the audience profile. This won't help for this beta but will help for future betas (possibly).

I don't read it explicitely in the article, but you do mention it in the comments:

 

I have already have earned the Solutions Architect Expert certification. Passing just 1 of these 2 is sufficient to extend it for another 2 years and which one doesn't matter?

Will passing AZ-300 and AZ-301 provide a 2 years validity OR clearing either (AZ-303 and AZ-301) OR (AZ-300 and AZ-304) provide a 2 year validity?  

Occasional Contributor

Hi, the code AZ304LMsmart runs out.

 

Discount validation failed.

 

Discount: Discount - Microsoft Azure Architect Design (blog)

  • This discount is no longer available because it has a use limit, and the use limit has been met.
Occasional Visitor

Hi !

 

Is there any deadline to take the exam or until when it will be available ? Deadline (for voucher) is 10th August, so for fully paid exam shoulbe a date near to it, but in Pearson I see I could book until December 2020.

@Daniel Rodrigues Parreira and @Deepak_Singh_Rawat: Please note that we’re extending—by six months—all certifications that expire through December 31, 2020. If you want to prove that your skills are up to date right now, you can use EITHER (passed, of course!) exam as an opportunity to extend your certification’s expiration by two years.

@zerick: You can register for either exam for full price even during the beta period. However, you will need to wait to receive your score until after the exams go live which take about 12 weeks from the beta release date.

Occasional Visitor

@Liberty Munson I would love to take these exams but unfortunately they can only be taken in our holiday season.

 

Well, bad luck for me I suppose :(

@rashmi118  The Beta codes are sold out.

Thanks @Liberty Munson for the reply. So discount codes are not available for India region, but can I apply for beta exams from India or that too is not available for India?

@mukularora the beta discount codes cannot be used in India, Pakistan, China, or Turkey as noted in the post.

Hi @Liberty Munson I have 1 year left on my Azure Architecture Expert certification (AZ-300 and AZ-301).  Is the 'renewal' path going to continue to be to take one of the new exams to extend my certification for 2 years?  i.e. in 11 months when I need to renew I will still only have to take 1 new exam?  Thanks.

@Richard Eke That is exactly what she wrote a couple of replies back...

Ready to prove your skills on Azure architecture?

Be sure to take advantage of the discounted beta exam offers. The first 300 people who register for and take one of these exams on or before August 10, 2020, can get 80% off market price! This applies to both exam AZ-303 (beta) exam and exam AZ-304 (beta), for a total of 600 discounted exams. Remember that you can take Microsoft Certification exams online.

 

 

@SandeepKNair You have to use the voucher when you book the exam, not after you have taken it. These vouchers were very popular and all 300 were requested very quickly

Hi All, I can see AZ-303 and AZ-304 are still under beta programme:

When will the beta process be finished? Is it supposed to be completed by 30 June, 2020?

 

 

Microsoft

@anll0 the beta exams were launched on June 30. It takes ~12 weeks for the process to be complete. October is the best guess for when these exams will be live.

Dear @Liberty Munson ,

I did both the AZ-303 and AZ-304 yesterday. Does this mean that I will not have my results till October??!!

If not, when do you expect that it will happen?

Many thanks in advance.

 

Kind Regards,

That's the best guess right now. The process can take 12 weeks +/- a few weeks.

I have cleared AZ 300. Next planning for AZ 301 or AZ 304. Till what period my above certifications individually would be valid along with Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification title.

Microsoft

@Deepak_Singh_Rawat you can use the old versions of these exams to meet the certification requirement for one year after they expire.

Thanks @Liberty Munson for response. It means the certificate Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert would be valid till September 2021 even in case if one clears old versions (AZ-300 and AZ-301) in September 2020 which is the retirement date of these exams. Please help me validate my understanding.
