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?

    Microsoft Certification Program is supported on their own forums. I'd try asking for help in dedicated forums here. (Participate\Ask A Question)
    Ask the Microsoft Learning Community
    Microsoft Learn

    You can also browse and select paths here.

    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.
