If you are looking to become a Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert, remember that on March 31, 2022 Exam AZ-303 and Exam AZ-304 will retire. These exams are being replaced by the new Exam AZ-305: Designing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions, currently in beta.

 

If you’re well along on your certification journey, these are your options:

  • If you’ve already passed Exam AZ-303, pass the new Exam AZ-305 (beta).
  • If you’ve already passed Exam AZ-304 or Exam AZ-301, be sure to pass Exam AZ-303 before it retires on March 31, 2022.
  • If you’ve already passed Exam AZ-300, be sure to pass Exam AZ-304 before it retires on March 31, 2022.
  • Pass both Exam AZ-303 and Exam AZ-304 before they retire on March 31, 2022.

 

If you’re just starting your journey as Azure solutions architect:

  • Earn the Azure Administrator Associate certification (Exam AZ-104) and pass Exam AZ-305 (beta).
  • If you have a current Azure Administrator Associate certification, you’re halfway there—just pass Exam AZ-305 (beta).

 

Is it time to renew?

If you’ve already earned the Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification and it’s time to renew it, don’t take Exam AZ-305 (beta). Instead, renew your certification by passing a free online assessment on Microsoft Learn. For instructions, check your Certification Dashboard.
