Let me tell you all about Microsoft 365 Certified: Enterprise Administrator Expert certification.
To be eligible for the Microsoft 365 Certified Enterprise Administrator Expert certification, candidates must pass MS-100 – Microsoft 365 Identity and Services and MS-101 – Microsoft 365 Mobility and Security. We have just announced the Microsoft 365 Certified Modern Desktop Administrator Associate certification. We also plan to offer certifications on additional workloads in early 2019. Given our history of certification, you can probably guess which ones. I will also announce the betas and their availability on this blog.

Once you have completed at least one of the upcoming workload exams and passed MS-100 or MS-101, your status will be as a Microsoft 365 Certified Enterprise Administrator Expert. You can be one of the first to take these beta exams (if passed, it counts towards this certification) and you get a 80% discount.
