Today, 24th of September, Microsoft has announced six new job role-based certifications. Replacing the current skills bases certifications.
The job role-based certifications are based on 3 job roles:
Each of the role-based certifications consist off 2 exams (and 1 upgrade exam if you have passed the 70-532 / 70-533 and/or 70-535 in the passed.
As you could read in one of my previous posts you have the option to take a BETA exam for the newly announced exams. The exams for Azure Administrator looks to be AZ-100, AZ-101 and AZ-102 out of beta (no beta anymore in the title of the exams).
The exams for both Azure Developer and Azure Solutions Architecht are just published. You could take both of the exams with an 80% discount during the beta (only first 300 people and before a certain date)
So you have taken one of the Azure exams in the past? Well then you could take one of the upgrade or transition exams.
The upgrade exam for 70-532 is AZ202
The upgrade exam for 70-533 is AZ102
The upgrade exam for 70-535 is AZ302
