Microsoft Certified: Power Platform Functional Consultant Associate (PL200)

In this five-day Microsoft certified course, students will learn to perform discovery, capture requirements, engage subject matter experts and stakeholders, translate requirements, and configure Power Platform solutions and apps. They will supplement their learnings with hands-on labs to create application enhancements, custom user experiences, system integrations, data conversions, custom process automation, and custom visualizations. Power Platform is comprised of four key products: Power Apps, Power Automate, Power BI, and Power Virtual Agents. In this course, we will cover these four applications in depth, with additional focus on Microsoft Dataverse (formerly Common Data Service), AI Builder, connectors, and portals.

This training is a comprehensive preparation for the PL-200: Microsoft Power Platform Functional Consultant exam to earn the Microsoft Certified: Power Platform Functional Consultant Associate certification.
