Last May we launched the Nerdio Partnerd program to give our MSP and channel partners access to a full arsenal of resources including our NMM-200 certification, discounted pricing, and an asset library with case studies, content white labelling capabilities, testimonials, product demo videos, and more. Today, we are excited to announce the launch of our newest certification program, NMM-100!
NMM-100 is designed to build partner proficiencies in Microsoft Azure and Nerdio Manager for MSP. Specifically, we are using this certification to give partners that first leg up when it comes to understanding the terminology, technology and best practices needed to be successful in deploying and managing Azure Virtual Desktop via Nerdio Manager.
Below we’ve shared details around what the exam covers, resources you can use to prepare for it, and an explanation of how NMM-100 and NMM-200 relate to each other.
What Does the NMM-100 Exam Entail, and How Should I Prepare?
Our study curriculum is outlined below. It is a combination of articles and videos intended to give you a comprehensive understanding of Microsoft Azure, Nerdio Manager for MSP, Azure Virtual Desktop and Microsoft 365.
- Lesson One – Azure Fundamentals
- Lesson Two – Identity Management
- Lesson Three – Microsoft 365
- Lesson Four – Azure Virtual Desktop
- Lesson Five – NMM Fundamentals
- Lesson Six – NMM Account Deployment Paths
The exam contains 60 questions related to the above lessons. We highly recommend you pay close attention when consuming the curriculum material as it closely overlaps with content that will appear in the exam.
How Does This Relate to the NMM-200 Certification?
Completion of the NMM-100 exam will ensure you are fluent in the underlying fundamentals needed to succeed with your AVD deployments. NMM-200 is more technically sophisticated than NMM-100, and those prepared to take the level 200 exam need a fair amount of Azure experience and knowledge to be successful in passing.
NMM-100 is offered FREE to Partnerd members. Partners who pass the exam will be eligible for a 50% discount on the NMM-200 certification. To claim the discount, they must sign up and pay within 90 days of passing NMM-100.
How Do I Register to Get Certified?
Head to our MSP Certifications page, scroll down and click the “Get Certified” button to start the process. To find the MSP Certifications page manually on the website, look for the ‘For Partners’ tab found at the top of the website (picture below), hover over the tab and select “Get Certified.”
Our certification programs have been carefully crafted to provide partners with the knowledge needed to build a successful (and profitable) cloud practice in Microsoft Azure using Nerdio. We look forward to seeing how the addition of NMM-100 helps accelerate your business and would love to hear any feedback you may have on the exam!
