What you will need

  • As this is a professional-level course, it is expected that you have experience working with Azure already. Whilst this course is designed to expand upon service complexity, you should still already have the following:* AZ-900 level knowledge or certification * Familiarity with traditional Microsoft on-premises environments * Basic networking knowledge (routing and IP addressing) * Experience with Azure management tools (Azure Portal, Azure CLI, PowerShell, etc)

What are Hands-on Labs

What's the difference between theoretical knowledge and real skills? Practical real-world experience. That's where Hands-on Labs come in! Hands-on Labs are guided, interactive experiences that help you learn and practice real-world scenarios in real cloud environments. Hands-on Labs are seamlessly integrated in courses, so you can learn by doing.
