Solution Partner Infrastructure Skilling Pre-requisites

Requesting confirmation/denial of applying Advanced Skilling pre-requisite, AZ-305, to Intermediate Skilling pre-requisite, AZ-104 using Indvidual's certification for both.

Attempting to get approval for an individual's Advanced Skilling Pre-requisite to be also counted towards the Intermediate Skilling Pre-requisite since the higher-level certification includes the lower-level materials.

The individual already has certification for AZ-305 which has pre-requisite exam AZ-104, so no need to take AZ-104 again.

Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert (AZ-305) certification pre-requisite Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate (AZ-104 exam) certification

Current ticket response from Microsoft Support stated that there is no documentation to deny allowing AZ-305 Advanced pre-requisite to also apply towards the Intermediate pre-requisite which is AZ-104.

Is there documentation to confirm/deny this? We need to complete our Solution Partner Skilling points.

    Hi Stacey,

    When looking at a skilling requirement that says Azure Administrator Associate certification, the question is, does the person have Active Azure Administrator Associate certification?

    The person can give you sharing link to their Learn transcript, which has a section named Active certifications. Under that, you need to see Microsoft Certified: Azure Administrator Associate. If you see that then great, the Azure Administrator Associate part of the skilling requirement is met. If not, the requirement isn't met.

    Same thing with skilling requirement that says Azure Solutions Architect Expert. Check Active certifications section of transcript and look for Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert.

    When looking at transcript, pay attention to expiration dates. If the date is less than 6 months from now, you should have the person renew their certification (it is free to renew).
