Power Platform Developer certification is in beta now

Microsoft is launching the new Power Platform developer role to focus on  implementing Power Platform solutions, and we need beta participants.

 

Do you design, develop, secure, and troubleshoot Power Platform solutions? Do you implement components of a solution that include application enhancements, custom user experience, system integrations, data conversions, custom process automation, and custom visualizations? Do you have  strong applied knowledge of Power Platform services, including in-depth understanding of capabilities, boundaries, and constraints? If so, this beta exam is for you!

 

The new Microsoft Certified: Power Platform Developer Associate certification has one exam that is currently in beta: Exam PL-400: Microsoft Power Platform Developer.

 

To receive the 80% discount*, use code PL400Isin 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 10/26/2020.

 

*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 10/26/2020. 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.

"The new Microsoft Certified: Power Platform Developer Associate certification has one exam that is currently in beta: Exam PL-200: Microsoft Power Platform Developer."

 

Here I guess you are talking about PL-400, not PL-200. Correct?

Senior Member

It seems that the exam is not available at the moment on Pearson exam system. Do you know when it will be available for scheduling on Pearson?

New Contributor

As @SarfarazNaz comment, trying to schedule the exam will just redirect to the Pearson VUE dashboard and not the booking page. When I called, the Pearson VUE customer service told me that PL-400 is not available in their system.

Still the same issue here

This is clearly a typo and yes it's about PL-400 !

 

The exam seems accessible in pearson view today.

This isn't working correctly get many errors on the exam registration page:

GEB02: We encountered a transient issue while checking for benefits. Please try again.

 

Or no error at all but they all result on the same page, he past exam overview and not the schedule exam page.

Senior Member

@JSPadoan did you see the exam on the Pearson website for registration? because I have checked just now and it is not working

 

Occasional Contributor

Hi @msvayani, @JSPadoan

 

You are correct is a typo the exam is PL-400 (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/certifications/exams/PL-400).

 

I tested the exam schedule and it is not working with or without a private window.

Same issue. 

Unable to proceed to "Schedule Exam" page.

Looks like exam was not setup on the Pearson Vue site.

Regular Visitor

Unable to schedule the exam today also. Same issue as mentioned for above users.

Just checked now. Able to schedule the exam now. 

All the best! :)

How can a MCT get this exam free?

Occasional Contributor

Hi @ashishanand13 ,

 

Check your e-mail or MCT Central.

Regular Visitor

@Ricardo I checked the MCR Central but I couldn't find anything. There are old codes there.

 

Also if you can help me in guiding where I can find the codes will be grateful.

Beta exam discount is not applicable for country India. Why?. Is there any specific reason for this.
