This entry-level Microsoft Azure Administrator training prepares Azure administrators to take the AZ-104 exam, which is the one required exam to earn the Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator Associate certification.
If your organization uses Microsoft Azure, you're probably already well familiar with the security and compliance offerings, or the open source language and framework support, or the integration with hybrid, on-premise, and multi-cloud environments. But the strengths of Microsoft's package of cloud solutions aren't always accessible out-of-the-box. Any organization that moves its applications support, data management or networks to the cloud needs trained and certified Azure administrators. The AZ-104 certifying exam is one of the most recent additions to the family of certifications that set an administrator apart as an expert in implementing, managing and monitoring Azure services, and this training will prepare you for passing it.
For anyone who leads an IT team, this Microsoft training can be used for AZ-104 exam prep, onboarding new Azure administrators, individual or team training plans, or as a Microsoft reference resource.

Who Should Take AZ-104 Training?
This Azure Administrator training is considered professional-level Microsoft training, which means it was designed for Azure administrators. This Azure skills course is valuable for new IT professionals with at least a year of experience with Azure services and experienced Azure administrators looking to validate their Microsoft skills.
New or aspiring Azure administrators. This AZ-104 training is a great target for new or aspiring Azure administrators to aim for if you know -- or suspect -- that a mastery of Microsoft products in particular could secure you a job. If your organization makes use of the Azure suite of products, there's no reason not to become familiar to the point of an expert with their use. That's just what you'll get with this Azure Administrator Associate training, preparing you for a career administering Azure networks.
Experienced Azure administrators. A candidate for the Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator Associate certification should have at least six months of hands-on experience administering Azure. What that means for experienced Azure administrators without an associate-level certification yet is that you're probably ready to take a shot at the exam. But in case there are aspects of the cloud administration suite of products you're unfamiliar with, start with our training and be fully prepared for the AZ-104.
