Just wanted to get your attention to something quite important. Until the end of the year, to be a certified partner, you have to have one or more certified individuals that must together pass these exams:
Next year, you need more. There are two more exams required to be a certified partners:
Also very important to know: from January 1, 2009, minimum exam requirements listed above for "Microsoft Dynamics NAV Authorization" must be on version 4.0 or higher.
If you're a partner, you can find more information on here.
Make sure your certifications are ok and updated in Voice to avoid to become "blocked" at EOC.
Yeah, we got that same "warning" ourselves (today).
Don't count on them overlooking this rquirement even for larger organizations. I work for one of those "larger" organizations and our management was told that this requirement would not be overlooked.
Well, I never took that exam, so I wouldn't know.
But on the other hand, I can imagine... .
A typical NAV developer will never touch 75% of the subjects tested in that SQL exam. It would be nice if they devised certification requirements that were actually consistent with the job requirements.
Microsoft are always changing this :-)
When they took over Navision they made accreditation dependent upon SQL server exam and others, then it was also with some core and elective exams, then they overlayed gold partner, then for the past few years they juggled around with the accreditations.
Still nice to know what they expect from next year - although if you are big enough they do by pass this requirement!
It's SQL exam 70-431 -OR- 70-432.
If you need to study one, just go for 70-432 since it's for SQL 2008
I'm afraid so ... best is to contact your PAM... .
So, if we are MCP, but for now we don't have, for example, Microsoft Dynamics NAV Installation & Configuration certificate, then we will be blocked in January?
