There are new learning paths for Azure Certification
Microsoft have embraced a more free-form workshop model of delivery to give a far more agile feel to their Azure courses. Each learning path is made up of single-day courses that focus on a single technology.
Each course can be taken individually but can also be combined into a 5-day block of learning, allowing learners to have more control of their Azure education.
There are new exams with a much narrower focus, which should make them easier to prepare for and show more role-specific qualifications as a result.
The new job roles and their certifications are the following:
- Azure Solutions Architect
- Azure Administrator
- Azure Developer
- Azure DevOps Engineer
- Microsoft 365 Enterprise Administrator
- Microsoft 365 Modern Desktop Administrator
The exams for the Azure Administrator path have been live since July 2018 and the Azure Developer and Azure Solutions Architect certification exams were released in beta at the end of September 2018. The remaining paths (Azure DevOps Engineer, Microsoft 365 Modern Desktop Administrator, and Microsoft 365 Enterprise Administrator) should be launched by the end of the year.
