New #MSDYNGP Certification Process

Hi everyone! I know, it's been a while since you've heard from me, but my contributions to the Microsoft Dynamics GP community go beyond just blogging and attending events. I've been involved with the development of the next generation of Microsoft Dynamics GP exams and certification process, which is been quite a rewarding experience and certainly a time consuming one. I have always been a firm believer that certifications are an important part of a professional career development, whether you are a partners, a consultant, or a customer, hence, I've spent quite some time over the past few months working with the good folks of the Association of Dynamics Professionals in a counseling capacity to bring new guidelines and a certification process that will be industry worthy.

But as many of you already know, this is the kind of stuff I really enjoy, but we cannot do this by ourselves, so here is where you come in: I NEED YOUR HELP!

The main goal is to build a set of exams that will lead up to a master certification, which will show various degrees of professional development to prospective employers, whether you choose to work for a Microsoft Dynamics GP customer, partner, ISV, or remain an independent consultants. The first iteration of the exam building process is to source questions from the general public. If you are interested in submitting one or more questions for the exam, we would love to hear from you and your help is greatly appreciated.

We have so far invested quite some time into building a solid certification process and need you to think about what questions you would like to see in the exams that will be administered down the road. This will require you to THINK and put some effort into coming up with the questions you submit.

You can go to and follow the instructions there to submit your questions. You’ll have to watch a video on what makes a good or bad exam question and there is a process to follow. Be patient and work your way through. There's no limit as to how many questions you can submit, but we want your best effort.

This is something that's going to benefit the community as a whole and will allow you to follow your career path in the Dynamics GP world.

Until next post!
