Azure Virtual Machines Online Training

In this intermediate Microsoft skills training, Chuck Keith covers the virtualization objectives in the AZ-103 exam, which is one of two exams required to earn the Microsoft Certified Azure Administrator Associate certification.

After completing this Azure Virtual Machine training, you’ll know how to automate the deployment of Windows and Linux virtual machines in Azure — an essential skill for any capable cloud administrator.

For IT managers, this Microsoft training can be used for Azure Administrator exam prep, in on-boarding new cloud administrators, or as part of a team training plan.
