Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate (AZ-500) FAQs: Cost, Training, Value

Is the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate worth it?

The Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate isn’t worth it for all cybersecurity personnel, but for certain cybersecurity professionals who work with Azure it’s definitely worth it. It isn’t worth it for everyone because it’s specifically about implementing Azure security controls. So, if you have a job as an Azure security engineer, the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate is definitely worth it.

How much does the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate cost?

The Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate costs $165. Since the AZ-500 is the only exam you have to pass to earn the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate and there are no prerequisite courses or exams to take, $165 is the total cost of the certification. Paying for a course to make sure you pass the first time can make sure that you don’t have to pay the $165 twice, though.

is the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate exam difficult?

The Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate exam is AZ-500, and it can be difficult. Some people find AZ-500 difficult because it covers specific configuration and management approaches that are unique to Microsoft Azure. However, security engineers with about a year of hands-on experience working with securing Azure will probably find the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate pretty easy.

Does the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate expire?

Yes, the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate expires one year after you earn it. In June 2021, Microsoft reduced how long all their role-based and specialty certifications remain valid to one year. But don’t worry -- they also made it free to take a special recertifying exam. If you’re six months away from your Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate expiring, you can recertify for another year for free by passing the renewal exam.

How do I prepare for Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate?

You should prepare for the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate with a course that’s specifically designed for the AZ-500 because you don’t want to get overwhelmed with generic cybersecurity information that doesn’t apply to Azure, or with information that’s too advanced for the exam. A video-based course that gives you opportunities to practice what you’re learning is the best way to prepare for the Microsoft Certified: Azure Security Engineer Associate exam AZ-500.
