Passed an exam and became an MCT

These past few weeks have been crazy busy with travel, for clients and then last week speaking at SPTechCon in San Francisco. This week I finally got to be at home, to catch-up no normal work and family life, as well as take an exam I have been preparing for. I took the MS-500: Microsoft 365 Security Administration exam and passed, granting the title of “Microsoft 365 Certified: Security Administrator Associate“, sounds super exciting right? The exam itself was complicated, with lots of tough questions and a lab where you have to prove you know how to do it, in a live tenant.

All in all, was a good one to study for and it did help that I create the MS-500 course for the guys over at Skill Me Up 🙂

Also this week I achieved one of my other goals for the year. I became a Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT). This has been a bunch of work over the past few years, creating courses for Pluralsight, Opsgility / Skill Me Up and LinkedIn Learning. I am honored to be an MCT and look forward to what else this year holds 🙂
