The SharePoint 2010 Certifications (both for IT Pros and Developers) both go live on Monday.
For IT Pros:
- Exam 70-667 TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Configuring
- Exam 70-668 Pro: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Administrator
- Exam 70-573 TS: Microsoft SharePoint 2010, Application Development
- Exam 70-576 Pro: Designing and Developing Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Applications
There are some classes available (under “Preparation Materials” at the above links), and if you can get your boss to send you to training, that is absolutely the way to go.
