MAY 23, 2013: PING Works’ SharePoint architect Alexey Glazyrin is heading to Microsoft’s headquarters in Redmond, USA on June 6 where he’ll spend the next three months training to become a Microsoft Certified Solutions Master on SharePoint 2013.

This will make him Australia’s first and only person to gain the certification. Only 100 people globally held the certification on previous versions of SharePoint.

The program includes over 100 hours of instructor-led training delivered by a team of top Microsoft SharePoint product experts. It combines lectures, facilitated design exercises, and hands-on labs performed in state-of-the-art lab environments.

On his return in September, Glazyrin will head up the PING Works SharePoint team to deliver cutting edge SharePoint Content Management Solutions for clients.

Glazyrin says he’s very excited to be heading to Seattle to undergo the training.

“It was an incredibly challenging interview to be selected and I’ve been studying in preparation ever since,” he says. “It’s going to be intense, but I’m seeing increased demand for IT professionals with a deep, technical understanding of SharePoint capabilities and I’m looking forward to sharing what I learnt with the team and my clients on my return.”

To qualify for the program, people need to show a thorough understanding of Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013; of ASP.NET, Windows Server, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS), SQL Server, and other core technologies upon which SharePoint depends; hands-on experience with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2013; three or more years of hands-on experience with previous versions of SharePoint; as well as Microsoft Certifications in MCSA: Windows Server 2012, MCSE: SharePoint, MCSD: SharePoint Applications.
