New certification for Microsoft Teams Support Engineers

We are looking for engineers who support Microsoft Teams environments, troubleshoot deployments, tune performance, collect and analyze telemetry and log data, and manage Microsoft Teams environments to participate in our new beta exam for a new portfolio of certifications that we will be launching for Customer Support Engineers.


If this is your skill set, we have a new certification for you. The Microsoft 365 Certified: Teams Support Engineer Associate certification validates your expertise in this area and offers you the opportunity to prove your skills. To earn this certification, pass Exam MS-740: Troubleshooting Microsoft Teams, currently in beta.


Is this the right certification for you?

This certification could be a great fit if you have significant experience with unified communications and hands-on experience with Microsoft Teams. In addition, you should have networking knowledge of Azure fundamentals, telephony, PowerShell, data storage technologies, APIs, app security, authentication and authorization, security, and compliance information, debugging, performance tuning, and monitoring.


Ready to prove your skills?

Take advantage of the discounted beta exam offer. The first 300 people who take Exam MS-740 (beta) on or before August 5, 2021, can get 80 percent off market price!


To receive the discount, when you register for the exam and are prompted for payment, use code SummerMS740. This is not a private access code. The seats are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. As noted, you must take the exam on or before August 5, 2021. Please note that this beta exam is not available in Turkey, Pakistan, India, or China.


Get ready to take Exam MS-740 (beta):


Did you know that you can take any role-based exam online? Online delivered exams—taken from your home or office—can be less hassle, less stress, and even less worry than traveling to a test center—especially if you’re adequately prepared for what to expect. To find out more, check out my blog post Online proctored exams: What to expect and how to prepare.


The rescore process starts on the day an exam goes live, and final scores for beta exams are released approximately 10 days after that. For details on the timing of beta exam rescoring and results, read my post Creating high-quality exams: The path from beta to live. For more information, follow me on Twitter (@libertymunson).


Ready to get started?

Remember, the number of spots is limited to the first 300 candidates taking Exam MS-740 (beta) on or before August 5, 2021.
