Overview

This two-day course will provide foundational level knowledge on cloud concepts; core Azure services; security, privacy, compliance, and trust; and Azure pricing and support. Note: This course provides an Azure pass and time for students to participate in hands-on labs. If you do not need hands-on experience, consider the MAZ900 - Microsoft Azure Fundamentals (1 day) course. The content for both courses align to the AZ-900 exam objective domain.

Please note, this course addresses the same syllabus as the one day MAZ900 with the addition of practical delegate labs to address the specific topics covered. These practical labs make this course a suitable option for technical delegates who will be actively working with Azure services.

Target Audience

The audience for this course is just beginning to learn about cloud computing and how Microsoft Azure provides that service. The course is suitable for technical and non-technical audiences, who are involved with the cloud and need an overview of Azure products and services. Because of the hands-on component, this course is more appropriate for technical students who need to create services in the Azure portal, and may go on to role-based courses and certifications, such as Azure Administrator.

Prerequisites
