We’re looking for Microsoft Fabric Analytics Engineers to take our new beta exam. Do you have subject matter expertise in designing, creating, and deploying enterprise-scale data analytics solutions? If so, and if you know how to transform data into reusable analytics assets by using Microsoft Fabric components, such as lakehouses, data warehouses, notebooks, dataflows, data pipelines, semantic models, and reports, be sure to check out this exam. Other helpful qualifications include the ability to implement analytics best practices in Fabric, including version control and deployment.

If this is your skill set, we have a new certification for you. The Microsoft Certified: Fabric Analytics Engineer Associate certification validates your expertise in this area and offers you the opportunity to prove your skills. To earn this certification, pass Exam DP-600: Implementing Analytics Solutions Using Microsoft Fabric, currently in beta.


Is this the right certification for you?

This certification could be a great fit if you have in-depth familiarity with the Fabric solution and you have experience with data modeling, data transformation, Git-based source control, exploratory analytics, and languages, including Structured Query Language (SQL), Data Analysis Expressions (DAX), and PySpark.
