Have you considered earning a certification that validates your ability to strengthen your team’s digital foundation and to use technology to innovate and adapt? To help you plan your career journey, we’re presenting a new series of blog posts that explore the value and benefits of Dynamics 365 certifications.

 

In this post, we’ll focus on some of the highlights of our certification portfolio, which spans from fundamentals to role-based certifications that validate key Dynamics 365 skills.  

 

We’re here to help you discover the career path that’s right for you—whether you’re just starting out with Dynamics 365, looking to advance, or wanting to change to a new focus. When you pass an exam and earn your Microsoft Certification, that’s a validation of your skills and experience. The combination of your skills and a globally recognized, industry-endorsed Microsoft Certification sends a career-building message to employers. Your certification can even give you a boost of confidence and recognition in your career.

 

In later posts in this series, we’ll dive deeper into each of the certifications that we highlight here, to help you further explore and choose the certifications that are right for you and your career journey. Microsoft Power Platform and Dynamics 365 certifications often complement each other.

The benefits of certification

Dynamics 365 offers many avenues for professionals to deepen their skills. Let those skills guide you as you investigate the different Dynamics 365 certifications available to you. A Microsoft Certification validates that you have the skills that organizations are looking for when they hire and advance employees. Plus, Microsoft keeps certifications up to date based on market and industry demands.

 

Many respondents in the 20202021 Microsoft Dynamics Salary Survey from Nigel Frank consider that years of experience with Dynamics 365 is the most important factor associated with a professional’s earning potential. Added to that, 61 percent of that survey’s respondents believe that certifications give you an edge in the job market. Many reported a salary increase (a 22 percent increase, on average) after they achieved a certification. Just as you use certifications to prove your skills, organizations can use them to identify the talent they’re looking for. They can even help you achieve promotions and raises.

 

Certifications can give your self-confidence and your career a boost. They’re an indication to employers that you’re willing to invest the time to build essential skills. The Global Knowledge 2020 IT Skills and Salary Report found that IT professionals with certifications, on average, earn more than their peers without them. Interestingly, the survey found that the more certifications a professional holds, the higher their average salary. Certification, combined with your drive and abilities, can help to open career doors for you.

 

The fundamentals certifications

Consider a fundamentals certification as the first milepost on your certification journey. These very popular technical certifications are held by professionals all over the globe. They build foundational skills and provide a pathway for earning certifications based on deeper technical skills required to perform industry roles.

 

There are two fundamentals certifications for Dynamics 365. The first is for those who are familiar with customer relationship management (CRM) and are IT savvy—either generally or through work experience. If you have this basic experience, look into Microsoft Certified: Dynamics 365 Fundamentals (CRM) certification (pass Exam MB-910).

The other fundamentals certification is for those who have a broad exposure to the enterprise resource planning (ERP) capabilities of Dynamics 365 and who understand the basics of how finance and operations apps fit in within the overall Microsoft ecosystem.
