Microsoft Certification Week for Partners

Monday, 23 August 2021


Are you ready to take the next step in proving your technical capabilities?

Cert Week is a skilling verification event for Microsoft partners who demonstrate their skills every day on the job and are ready to take the last step toward validating their technical expertise, showcasing mastery of a Microsoft solution area and gaining a Microsoft technical certification as they apply for Microsoft advanced specializations.

This free, four-day event combines a series of pre-requisite training resources, expert-led study groups, and exam preparation sessions that qualifies you to receive a practice test and a full exam voucher for free* while polishing your test taking skills and refining your technical understanding.

To be successful:

  • You should have six months or more technical experience
  • Fully prepare by taking the optional but highly recommended, pre-requisite courses and reference material at least 30 days prior to the Cert Week (start July 23 or sooner) allocating at least 5 – 10 hours of total pre-req preparation time before coming to the Certification Week
  • Actively participate throughout the week in the subject matter expert-led, formal study groups
  • Attend the exam preparation session aligned to your registered track
  • Register and take the practice test
  • Schedule the exam to be taken within 30 days of the Certification Week.

Study groups are sequential, exam topic review sessions for each track, led by subject matter experts and are required to earn your practice test and exam voucher. The study group facilitator will go over the most challenging exam topics and those with the largest question concentration. These sessions will be interactive, with check points, polls, knowledge check, and chat Q&A.

Exam preparation is a final live lecture at the end of the study group series that will walk through the exam, review test questions types and strategies, best practices, tips and tricks, and do a final wrap-up on exam objective questions as well as explain how to register for the practice exam and the certification exam.

Based on participation with the study groups and exam preparation sessions, you will be eligible to receive a practice test and exam voucher.


Schedule and take your practice test during the event week.

Register for the final exam and take within 4 weeks (September 23) of the event
