Advanced Specialization – Calling for Microsoft Teams

The Calling for Microsoft Teams Advanced Specialization requires a certain number of consultants, engineers, and support agents to pass the “MS-700 Managing Microsoft Teams” exam and Teams Calling Technical Assessment. Eligibility for the Specialization also involved maintaining a 2,500 monthly active users’ growth over a trailing 12-month period and providing reference cases for Microsoft to review.
