Retired Assessments - What is replacing them?
We have just renewed our MPN membership with Gold Competency in Data Analytics. One of the ways that we achieved this was by meeting the "Data Analytics Beginners" option. In the Partner Centre we are being told that the assessments are being retired (see attached screenshot). The issue is that there is no word on what is replacing these assessments and what the criteria will be next year for renewal.
Can anyone advise where / how we can find out what will be required next year?
If we need people to complete new assessments or achieve new certs, we need to know that now so that we can plan.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As far as I know, if you already renewed your membership and have the 4 people with the technical assessments passed, you are up and running until next year in June.
The other option is to take the 2 certifications:
You can look up the available certifications here : https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/learning/browse-all-certifications.aspx
I am not aware of any announced replacements being made now, this update might appear later, but allow me follow up.
Also in general the certifications only need to be updated if there is a new exam requirement. If the certification is not updated the individual does not need to retake the same exam(s). We do provide notice to partners when a new exam becomes available and is required for competency attainment. For competency attainment the partner organization must have the required number of individuals who have passed the defined certs by their competency renewal date.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for the response. Yes, we have renewed now. I am asking what we will need in place for next year September (our renewal month). We will need to plan for this soon and give our staff time to achieve new certifications if required.
Do you know what those retired assessments will be replaced with?
