Power Platform Functional Consultant certification available in beta now

Published Sep 25 2020 09:00 AM 9,875 Views

Microsoft is launching the new Power Platform functional consultant role to focus on Power Platform solutions and apps, and we need beta participants.


Do you perform discovery, capture requirements, engage subject matter experts and stakeholders, translate requirements, and configure Power Platform solutions and apps? Do you create application enhancements, custom user experiences, system integrations, data conversions, custom process automation, and custom visualizations? Do you implement the design provided by and in collaboration with a solution architect and the standards, branding and artifacts established by User Experience Designers? Do you design integrations to provide seamless integration with third party applications and services? If so, you may be a Power Platform Functional Consultant…why not get certified?


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


To receive the 80% discount*, use code PL200LMshines 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 10/23/2020.


*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 10/23/2020. 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.
