Now available: Lync Server certifications

Now available: Lync Server certifications

Krista Wall (Microsoft)

Exams 664 and 665 are available in Prometric testing centers! This means that you now can earn the MCTS: Lync Server 2010, Configuration and the MCITP: Lync Server 2010 Administrator certifications. Microsoft Lync Server 2010 is an integral part of the Microsoft "software-plus-services" cloud offering, Microsoft Office 365. Earning a Lync Server 2010 certification will distinguish you as skilled in the Microsoft cutting-edge cloud technologies. You can earn the MCTS by passing 664, or pass both 664 and 665 to earn the MCITP.

Visit the exam’s product pages for a list of the skills measured on each exam:

Need to study up a bit? Well, we’re still putting the finishing touches on the instructor-led training. Course 10534A will be available later this month, and Course 10533A will be available in May. Here’s a list of some other resources you can check out in the meantime. Remember that hands-on experience is the best way to build your skills!

I should mention that while you can earn these certifications today, it will be at least another week before you can download the certificate. We are aware of the issue and are working to resolve it right now.

 

Now go out there and get certified!

    Took 70-664 a couple of weeks ago, and 70-665. I'm all certified. Glad to finally get these out of the way. Know your codecs, know media bypass, and mediation stuff. I saw quite a bit on that in 70-665.

    Are there any plans for MS Press books?

    @ Pat: congratulations!

    @ Benjamin: I peeked in our toolbox, and I don't see any evidence of upcoming Press books on Lync Server. However, I wouldn't rule it out at a future date. I'll ask around and get back to you if I find out more.

    Hi Benjamin--A follow-up for you. Looks like you can download some chapters of the Lync Server Resource Kit here:

    Appears that they are still working on it. Hope that's helpful!

    What about the 90 day discounts for these exams? I just had to book my exam using the standard 45% discount.
