  • Comments 6

Do you want to stand apart from other IT personnel? Do you want to demonstrate your expertise with Microsoft Dynamics CRM to colleagues, employers, clients, peers, and –most important – yourself? Have you considered taking the Microsoft Dynamics CRM certification?  Or, what it takes to become certified?

Benefits of Certification

Achieving a Microsoft Dynamics CRM Certification allows you to:

• Evangelize skills and abilities to existing and prospective employers

• Expand and prove your technical skills

• Use certification credentials to screen potential employees

• Specialize in a particular area of Microsoft Dynamics CRM

Certification Designations for Individuals & Partner Organizations

The following certification designations are available for individuals:

Microsoft Certified Business Management Solutions Specialist
The achievement of this certification helps demonstrate an individual’s proficiency in one module of a Microsoft Dynamics or related business product. Microsoft Certified Business Management Solutions Specialists must pass a single certification exam for a Microsoft Dynamics or related business product to earn the title.

Microsoft Certified Business Management Solutions Professional
Microsoft Certified Business Management Solutions Professional is a premier certification that shows an individual has completed a pre-determined set of required and elective certification exams. This certification helps demonstrate an individual’s broad and deep knowledge of a Microsoft Dynamics product — more knowledge than what is needed to achieve a Microsoft Certified Business Management Solutions Specialist title.

There are also certification tracks for partner organizations. For more information regarding these certifications and certification requirements click here.

Also, check out the Training and Certification site to find other certification resources, including information about the several different forms of Microsoft Dynamics CRM training that are available to help you prepare for the certification, including:
