Azure Active Directory Online Training
This intermediate Azure Active Directory training prepares systems administrators to maintain the access users need to their applications and data while managing security for applications running both in the cloud and on-premises.
One of a systems administrator's core responsibilities is keeping data and apps secure while also making sure that users have access to what they're supposed to have. For years, Active Directory has provided the solution to that technological problem, and most sysadmins know how to use it. Azure Active Directory, despite its name, is a different tool that doesn't necessarily replace the AD that you and your company are already familiar with.
Azure AD isn't meant to replace Windows Server Active Directory -- Azure AD is meant to manage identity and access capabilities for apps running in both Azure and on-premises. Understanding when to use Azure AD exclusively and when to marry it to your existing AD environment can be confusing -- fortunately this training can both clarify it and prepare you for using it.
For IT managers, this Microsoft training can be used to onboard new systems administrators, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.

Who Should Take Azure Active Directory Training?
This Azure Active Directory training is considered associate-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for systems administrators. This Azure skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with Azure Active Directory and experienced systems administrators looking to validate their Microsoft skills.
New or aspiring systems administrators. If you're a brand new systems administrator, hopefully you're already familiar with the concepts of Active Directory. Either way, if your company uses a hybrid Microsoft Azure and on-premises environment, learning Azure Active Directory early in your career will save you a lot of headaches. This training will explain the differences between the AD approaches and how to master control of Azure AD.
Experienced systems administrators. Plenty of systems administrators with years of experience never get the opportunity to work with Azure Active Directory. But as soon as a company starts using Microsoft Azure to host applications -- whether or not they have an on-premises environment running apps as well -- it's crucial that sysadmins learn Azure AD. Azure AD brings the oversight and security you're used to having on hybrid and Azure environments -- this training will make sure you're ready to use it.
