Azure user training. Businesses are moving to the cloud. Employees today need to know more about IT than how to use a few applications on a workstation. The wide-scale migration of IT services to the cloud means that everyone who uses these applications should also know something about them. Microsoft Certified Azure Fundamentals training will give the non-technical professional a basic understanding of Azure cloud services and how to make the most of them.
