Moving Microsoft Certifications to Learn - FAQ

October 10, 2019

Q. What is happening?
Portions of the Microsoft Learning (https://microsoft.com/learning) web site will move to the Microsoft Learn (https://docs.microsoft.com/learn/) web site. We will begin with the English version of the site and will move content for other languages over time.
Q. Why are the sites merging?
Microsoft Learn is the consolidated learning platform that lets people explore and learn about our products for free. We’ve built interactive, step-by-step tutorial experiences to help you learn Microsoft technology by combining short instructions, videos, interactive coding/scripting environments and achievements using your browser. By integrating information about Microsoft Certifications into Microsoft Learn, we continue moving toward a single learning destination for Microsoft learners.
Q. When will the content move to Microsoft Learn?
In mid-October 2019, we moved the English-language version of Microsoft Learning (https://microsoft.com/en-us/learning) web pages. Some web pages will be available on both web sites. We will move most of the Microsoft Certification web content from the remaining ten Microsoft Learning web sites in the coming months:
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
During the coming year we will continue to move web pages from Microsoft Learning to Learn in stages

Q. Will the certification, exam, training, and other content I see on Microsoft Learning today be moved as it is, with existing formatting, to Microsoft Learn?
Pages moving to Microsoft Learn will maintain the details, but page formatting will change slightly to improve your experience and to make it easier to find content.
Q. What about my bookmarks; will they continue to work?
Pages that move from Microsoft Learning to Microsoft Learn will be redirected to the new pages on Microsoft Learn. These redirects will not persist forever, so you should update your bookmarks when the pages move.

Profile and Certification Dashboard

Q. Will I still be able to see my completed certification information and registered exams?
Yes, you will continue to have full access to your profile in the Certification Dashboard (https://www.microsoft.com/learning/dashboard.aspx), as you do today. Scheduled exams, badges, certificates, and transcripts will remain available. Additionally, links to the Certification Dashboard will be added to Microsoft Learn.
Q. On the Microsoft Learn site, I see a profile “Sign in”. Is this the same as the profile “Sign in” on Microsoft Learning? Will I be able to login on the Microsoft Learn site to see my certification and exam information?
The sites integration happening in October will not include the Certification Dashboard. You will continue to access everything related to your certifications (exam schedules, history, badges, etc.) by logging into your profile on the Certification Dashboard (https://www.microsoft.com/learning/dashboard.aspx), which will be available on Microsoft Learning and also the Microsoft Learn site. The Tech Profile on Microsoft Learn (https://docs.microsoft.com/learn) will remain separate until a later date. In the coming months, we will merge the Certification Dashboard into the Tech Profile for a unified profile.
Q. If I already have a profile on Microsoft Learning, do I need to register for a Tech Profile on Microsoft Learn?
The Microsoft Learning profile is different than the Microsoft Learn Tech Profile. You will need to create a Tech Profile on Microsoft Learn to access certain features and functionality on Microsoft Learn that won't work unless you're signed in. If you do create a Tech Profile, we suggest you register using the same email as you used to create your Microsoft Learning profile. When the Microsoft Learning Certification Dashboard is merged into the Microsoft Learn Tech Profile in the coming months, we will provide details about linking profiles and other profile-related changes. Additionally, information about the Tech Profile on Microsoft Learn is available on the Frequently Asked Questions page (https://docs.microsoft.com/learn/support/?pivots=general).
