ACG <3 Azure

There’s never been a better time to advance your Microsoft Azure skills.

As Azure’s use continues to grow, it’s becoming increasingly important for cloud learners to understand and experience the Azure ecosystem. Whether it’s because you get the value of embracing a multi-cloud approach or you see how Azure is winning over enterprises, there are plenty of reasons to get Azure certified.

Free Microsoft Azure courses

AZ-900 Microsoft Azure Fundamentals 
If you’re new to Azure and wondering where to begin or which Azure certification path is right for you, our awesome Azure Fundamentals course is step one.

This 13-hour course was made in partnership with Microsoft and has been refreshed alongside recent updates to the AZ-900.  It’s ideal for anyone seeking the foundation needed to comfortably explore the Azure platform and sit the Azure Fundamentals AZ-900 exam. It’s an intro appropriate for everyone from engineers deep in the cloud weeds to sales and management staff. No previous experience required!

Need another reason to snag your Azure Fundamentals certification? Landing this cert won’t immediately elevate you to the status of cloud guru, true, but it’s clearly a valuable bit of information: it was one of the top-paying cloud certifications of 2020.

Using Azure for Disaster Recovery Quick Start
The cloud can save your bacon (and your backups), even for organizations unwilling to fully move to the cloud. Learn more in this beginner-level course on using Azure for disaster recovery, which covers how Microsoft Azure can be a real disaster recovery solution for on-premises environments.

Using Microsoft Azure Database Services
The cloud has rocked every bit of IT — even databases. Microsoft is at the forefront here, creating services in Azure to address your data needs. In this intermediate-level course, you’ll learn what these services are, how to use them, and how to select the right one for your business needs.

This advanced-level course will introduce you to some of the primary concepts that form the basis of Solution Architecture, including design principles, the utility and practice of technical and non-technical requirements gathering, and concepts around resource consumption and cost control.
