I will create study plans for these two exams and publish then in this website. I also plan to create 2 more playlists to my YouTube channel and create content for these two certifications. You can find my Channel at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvP41PZ3zM4aV8Zqey5yz7w. Subscribe to my Channel today and get notified when I launch the videos.
These certifications should be available on or around June 8, 2020. I already got some space in my schedule to take this! Always excited to add two more badges to my Microsoft Transcript!
