Why this training?

You probably know that data can be stored in the cloud. But what is the cloud? Where can we find the cloud? And who manages the cloud? 

Together with Microsoft, we’ve put together this 100% online course that will answer these questions once and for all. In our Microsoft Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) track, we will dive into the fundamentals of cloud computing with one of the top three cloud providers: Microsoft Azure. You’ll gain hands-on experience with Azure’s tools, services, and solutions and learn to speak the Azure language like a pro. Plus, you’ll know how to ensure data security on Azure, a crucial skill in today’s digital landscape.

With the AZ-900 certificate under your belt, you’ll be equipped with a solid foundation to take your career to the next level. Not only is the knowledge you gain about cloud computing required in any data-related position, but the certificate itself will also be a great credential to show to your employer or clients. It shows that you have the skills to work with Microsoft cloud services, know the difference between IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS, and understand the value of Azure services and good security practices.

Become an Azure cloud specialist!

Mastering the basics in Microsoft Azure will help you jump-start your career in the field of data. Therefore, this track is an excellent first step if you’re aiming for a career as a data analyst, data engineer, business intelligence professional, or data & AI consultant. If you’re already in the field and want to learn how to move from an on-premise business model to a cloud-based one, our AZ-900 track is for you! After this track, you will be familiar with cloud concepts, along with Azure services, workloads, security, privacy, pricing, and support. 

This course consists of 16 hours of live training, divided over 2 training days. During the training days, we offer a mix of theory and practical lab exercises, which will equip you with the knowledge and skills you need to obtain the Azure Fundamentals (AZ-900) Microsoft certification. After joining the live training days, it is time for some more studying! We provide you with a detailed guide that will help you prepare for the exam. The amount of self study-time required for this may vary, but we estimate it will take approximately 6 hours. 

Good to know: The costs of the exam are included in the price of this track. After the training days and your self-study, you can schedule your exam using the voucher that you will receive from us.

This training will be given in English.
