MS CRM 2011 Certification Specifically for Customizers RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am new to the MS Certification community and was hoping to find a certificate that aligns with the System Customizer role provided in CRM 2011. The three certifications that I have seen for CRM 2011 (Customization and Configuration, Applications and Installation and Deployment) don't really fit well with the role of System Customizer.  The first one is probably the closest fit but that would require our customizers learn far more than needed. Does anyone know if more certs are coming?    

    Thank you!

  • There is an additional exam, Extending Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 but this is geared more toward people doing C#/VB.NET coding and going well beyond what CRM can do out of the box. The Customization and Configuration exam is going to be the closest fit for someone working within the confines of the application.

  • Agreed, that's the best fit you will find, and it's pretty close really, although it depends what you think a customiser might actually need to do in your organisation specifically.

    The Workflow and Dialog Processes course may also be very useful, although there is no exam to validate those skills.

    There are no planned exams in the pipeline for CRM 2011 at the moment


    Hope this helps. Adam Vero, MCT
