Description

The Microsoft Certified Associate: Azure Administrator, is a new breed of Microsoft certification. It is referred to as a ‘role-based certification’. According to Microsoft, role-based certifications show that individuals that possess them are keeping pace with today’s technical roles and requirements. They allow a learner to skill up and prove their expertise to employers and peers, plus get the recognition and opportunities they’ve earned. Click here to learn more about Microsoft role-based certifications.
 
Microsoft role-based certifications cover three skill levels: 1. Fundamental, 2. Associate, and 3. Expert. Career paths include developer, administrator, devops, and solutions architect.
 
Microsoft claims that upon earning a certification, 23% of Microsoft certified technologists reported receiving up to a 20% salary increase. What’s more, certified employees are often entrusted with supervising their peers—putting them on the fast track for a promotion.
 

An example of a Microsoft Azure Administrator certification you can gain through this course bundle.

 
Prospective learners for this course are usually Azure Administrators who manage cloud services that span storage, security, networking, and compute cloud capabilities. Learners should have a deep understanding of each service across the full IT lifecycle, and take requests for infrastructure services, applications, and environments. They make recommendations on services to use for optimal performance and scale, as well as provision, size, monitor, and adjust resources as appropriate.
 
Prospective learners for this course should also have proficiency in using PowerShell, the Command Line Interface, Azure Portal, ARM templates, operating systems, virtualization, cloud infrastructure, storage structures, and networking.
 


 

Upon completion of this course, you’ll receive a Microsoft Azure Administrator ‘Acclaim’ badge that you can add to your CV or social media profile for prospective employers to see. You’ll also receive a Microsoft Azure Administrator certification as shown above.

How does this course bundle work?
 
This course bundle is made up of three main resources as shown below. Each certification course has as its own set of resources, i.e. 1 x course material and practice lab, 1 x MeasureUP practice exam, 1 x official Microsoft exam. Each resource is designed to work in conjunction with each other to ensure the successful path to certification. You will complete one course and exam, then repeat the process for the remaining course. Once you have passed the two exams, you will be officially certified by Microsoft as an Azure Administrator. Read below to learn more about the resources that make up this course.
 
 Courses and Practice Labs
The hands-on live practice labs allow you to experience practical application of course concepts in an authentic online environment 24/7, all from the comfort of your home or office. The lab environment allows you to test and apply your skills as you learn. These labs also come with tasks challenging what you have learnt.
 
 MeasureUP Practice Exams
After working your way through each course and practice lab, you should be ready to start revising for your official exams. To do this, we provide you with MeasureUP practice tests. MeasureUP are the official provider to Microsoft for practice tests. These are the closest experience to the actual exam you’ll be taking. Scroll down to learn more about MeasureUP and the practice tests.
 
 Official Microsoft Exams
Having confidently passed the practice tests, you will be ready to sit the official Microsoft exams – which we will book on your behalf. These are known as an ‘online, web-proctored exams’. This means they can be taken at home. One of the requirements of taking these exams is that you must have a web camera so a proctor can observe you during the exams. This is to ensure no cheating takes place.
 
How long will it take me to complete each course?
 

This is dependent on several factors such as your level of experience of the subject matter, the amount of time you can dedicate to the course each week, and how quickly you absorb information. Learners can finish a single course from anywhere between 1-3 months. You will have full access to the resources for 12 months and must take your exams within this period.

 
What do I need?
 
This course is online and accessible 24/7. You can do it from any where in the world, any time of the day providing you have an internet connection. No apps are required to access the course resources. You simply do it from your browser. For the best user experience, we recommend Google Chrome.
