Some Microsoft certifications are not any more “valid” forever as they used to be. It probably makes sense considering how much technology changes so quickly. This happens, for instance, with the business applications certifications PL-100 Microsoft Power Platform App Maker, PL-400 Microsoft Power Platform Developer and PL-600 Microsoft Power Platform Solution Architect.
The good news is that Microsoft provides the option to extend the life of your certifications for one year without having to take the formal exam again. The renewal assessment contains similar questions to the original exams, but with some new updates based on the latest changes in the platform. You don’t need the camera or any other tracking mechanisms during the assessment, so it is far more relaxed. Additionally, you can take it as many times as you need to.
Before finishing the year, I wanted to renew these three certifications, so I can focus on new learnings in 2023 🙌
