I can't find a certification for SQL Server 2019 Database Administration?
I can see SQL 2016 courses and certification ended on 1/31/21.
Does Azure training/certifications also cover SQL 2019?

    There are no more certifications exam available for On premise SQL Server.

    You will have browse through active certifications and choose closely matching one and I guess that is DP-300- Exam DP-300: Administering Relational Databases on Microsoft Azure

    SQL Azure has something like 1.7% market share, a 35% increase from a year ago but still small. SQL Server has about 17%, a decrease from a year ago but it's not going away any time soon.

    Anyone know how else can I provide independent assurance to a hiring manager that I can maintain their SQL Server databases? What are the alternatives? LinkedIn skills testing? Udemy course completion certificates? They simply aren't as rigorous or widely accepted as proof positive that I know what I'm doing.
