Who Should Take AZ-103 Training?
This Azure Administrator training is considered associate-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for systems administrators and Azure administrators. This AZ-103 course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with Azure and experienced administrators looking to validate their cloud skills.
New or aspiring Azure administrators. Azure makes easy what was once difficult, cumbersome, or monotonous. But you need to learn how to use these tools, and that’s where AZ-103 training comes in. Chuck Keith designed this course so that anyone could learn the core Azure services, store and share files, configure virtual machines in the cloud, enable cloud access and privileges. If you get into this course and find it too advanced, AZ-900 may be a better starting point — and that’s fine, too.
Experienced systems administrators. Any systems administrator who has been using Azure services for a few years may be able to skip around in this AZ-103 training. If you already know how to deploy or resize Azure VMs, then skip that part and move to the MFA section, Azure CLI, or the Azure CDN videos. Chuck Keith built this AZ-103 from the AZ-103 exam objectives, though. If you’re preparing to take the AZ-103 exam, watch every video and take every in-video quiz. It’ll be a good review.
