About the course

The AZ-900 Microsoft Azure Fundamentals exam is designed for candidates looking to demonstrate foundational knowledge of cloud services, and how those services are implemented with Microsoft Azure. The exam is intended for those students who don’t have a technical background but have an interest in the Cloud. This includes those involved in selling or purchasing cloud-based solutions and services, those with a technical background who have a need to validate their foundational-level knowledge around cloud services, and those who are simply interested in exploring the world of cloud-based solutions to determine if it’s a career-changing building block.

The AZ-900 Microsoft Azure Fundamentals exam can be taken as an optional first step in learning about cloud services and how those concepts are exemplified by Microsoft Azure. It can be taken as a precursor to Microsoft’s Azure or Data and AI certifications. It will validate that you have the foundational knowledge necessary to start your learning journey to become an Azure Administrator, Developer, Architect, or DevOps Engineer. It can also be used as a starting point for those interested in data and AI job roles.
