Certification Certifications Microsoft Microsoft 365

The last Monday, I passed the Microsoft exam MS-100: Microsoft 365 Identity and Services. Again, due to the global pandemic, I have taken the exam using OnVUE’s online proctored modality. I am very excited to obtain a new Microsoft certification.

About the Exam>

About the Exam #

This exam measures your ability to perform the following technical tasks:

  • Design and implement Microsoft 365 services.
  • Manage user identity and roles.
  • Manage access and authentication.
  • Plan Office 365 applications and workloads.

If you plan to take this exam, my recommendation is that you take the MS-900 exam first. This exam provides you with a solid foundation on which to start a certification career in Microsoft 365.
