Any plans for Microsoft Power BI Certifications ?

[ Edited ]

Happy New Year Everyone Smiley Happy A quick question!

Hello Power BI team/users. Is there any plan for certification exam (just like MCTS) specifically for Microsft Power BI which will cover Power BI Desktop Tool and Power BI Service?

Hi @ashishrj,

 

It's a great idea! For now we don't have anything, but maybe in the future we will as Power BI usage grows.

We do have tons of training programs around, including the edX courses (for which you can actually get a certification) and our Dashboard in a Day and Dashboard in an Hour trainings. Also, there will be a lot of opportinities to get hands on training at the Microsoft Data Insights Summit, the first ever Excel and Power BI user conference.

Data for Everyone! We mean it

Replying to an older thread.

 

Microsoft has announced an upcoming certification in Power BI and another in Excel, which appear to combine for an MCSA in BI Reporting (if I'm interpreting the link below correctly).

 

70-778 - Analyzing and Visualizing Data with Power BI (Planned)

70-779 - Analyzing Data with Excel (Planned)

Re: Any plans for Microsoft Power BI Certifications ?

Hi,

 

Just took the exam today, but am unable to find info about the following:

 

1. Is there a known date when this will go out of beta (as only after that, one will get his grade)?

2. Does anyone know what the requirements are to pass the exam, how many %?

 

Thanks.
