Chris Schwilling receives his Microsoft 365 Enterprise Certification

Chris Schwilling, Cloud Engineer at Edafio Technology Partners, earned the Microsoft 365 Enterprise Certification Administrator Expert credential. The Microsoft 365 Enterprise Certification Administrator Expert validates his skills and experience in the modern workplaces and helps to further streamline the way users interact with technology. He joins a globally recognized and industry-endorsed Microsoft community of professionals who have demonstrated their dedication to higher standards of practice and mastering skills in digital and cloud businesses.

To earn this certification, Schwilling first had to pass three different exams. Microsoft 365’s new associate-level Teamwork Administrator certification confirmed that he could configure, deploy, and manage Office 365 workloads that focus on efficient and effective collaboration, such as SharePoint (online, on-premises, and hybrid), OneDrive, and Teams. Before passing the Teamwork Administrator Certification, Schwilling earned the  MS-100: Microsoft 365 Identity and Services and MS-101: Microsoft 365 Mobility and Security accreditations.

By successfully fulfilling all four certification requirements, he can now collaborate with business stakeholders and other workload administrators to better plan, implement and manage Microsoft 365 services, security and threat management, governance and compliance, access and authentication, user identity and roles to comply with policies and regulations of the organization.

With Hybrid work becoming the norm, having a certified Teams Administrator on staff allows Edafio to position our customers to seamlessly transition from in-person to hybrid work. Chris’s Microsoft 365 certifications will provide them with the knowledge, assurance and security they deserve.
