June 2022 Certification List Update

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

This month started out uneventful but ended on a very happy note.

Big Developments

  • 6/29 – Oracle customer support says that I can pass the 2022 Oracle Cloud Foundations Associate certification exam over waiting until September 2022 for my 2021 recertification period to start
  • 6/29 – Switched over from AWS She Builds CloudUp SAA April 2022 Slack thread to June 2022 thread
  • 6/30 – Received my FREE Microsoft Build Cloud Skills Challenge exam voucher code
  • 6/30 – Microsoft releases SC-100 out of beta and into general availability


Today, June 30, 2022, Microsoft has released the SC-100 cybersecurity architect exam out of beta and into general availability. What this means is that if you sit for the SC-100 now (provided that you have passed either the AZ-500, MS-500, SC-200 or SC-300 first) then you would know if you’ve passed or fail. I also hope that within 1-2 weeks the beta test takers (moi) would know our scores.

I have also received my Microsoft Build Cloud Skills Challenge FREE exam voucher code. I will use this for PL-300 provided that I pass the SC-100 (I feel confident about it which is why I have let my SC-300 exam voucher expire today).

Yesterday Oracle customer support told me that I could sit for the 2022 Oracle Cloud Foundations Associate exam instead of waiting for September 2022 to recertify my 2021 certification. This is huge news! I have documented this plus an additional surprise regarding Pearson VUE + Oracle Cloud plus the 2021 Oracle Cloud certification exams.

Finally the June 2022 roundup ends with my switching from the AWS She Builds CloudUp SAA April 2022 Slack thread to the June 2022 thread since the former cohort has ended. I am passing my SAA this time because the SAA-C02 retires August 29, 2022.

Third Quarter 2022

I do see myself accomplishing the following:

July 2022

  • Landing my full-time cloud job
  • Receiving my SC-100 cybersecurity architect expert
  • Passing the AWS Solutions Architect Associate
  • Recertify my 2022 Oracle Cloud Foundations Associate
  • Complete my AZ-700 Azure Network Engineer Associate renewal

August 2022

  • Celebrate my birthday
  • Pass my AZ-305 Azure Solutions Architect Expert certification
  • Pass the Oracle Cloud Data Management Foundations Associate
  • GCP Cloud Digital Leader
  • Pass the PL-300 and use the DataCamp Power BI learning path

September 2022

  • Start studying CISSP
  • AWS Solutions Architect Professional
  • GCP Associate Cloud Engineer

This may seem ambitious but I am already in the middle of studying for the AWS Solutions Architect Associate, AZ-700 renewal and Oracle Cloud Foundations Associate. I am clearing these three this month even with the new job.
