As cloud-based technology rapidly evolves, the need for highly skilled cloud technologists across a broad range of industries continues to grow. To help address this skills gap, today we’re excited to announce the launch of three new Microsoft Azure training offers that provide self-paced, interactive online learning experiences for technical professionals looking to grow their careers in the areas of cloud infrastructure, security, and application development.
These Microsoft Azure training and certification opportunities allow you to capitalize on the massive cloud opportunity and modernize your skills to build and create across multiple platforms with Microsoft Azure. These courses cover key technology concepts such as Microsoft Azure Fundamentals, Core Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Deployment, Security & Messaging, and Scale & Agility, which address critical skills needed in the modern workforce and allow all learners to achieve more.
These Azure offers feature MOOCs - Massively Open Online Courses – as the foundation of the training experience. MOOCs provide a free, flexible learning option delivered via the Azure cloud and are available to anyone. All you need is a device with access to the Internet and you can get started. MOOCs enhance learning outcomes by using technology to create more engaging learning experiences. This is a truly inclusive platform for delivering or consuming training, as the reach is as broad as Internet access availability.
MOOCs incorporate hands-on learning experiences that are just as rigorous as traditional classroom environments, with the added benefit that training providers can continuously improve their courses in real-time, to improve learner outcomes. We saw this in action when we introduced the data science track of the Microsoft Professional Program on edX, as we were able to make changes in the courses to increase success rates, or even provide real-time interventions to help a student get unblocked and complete their particular course. Ultimately the true winner is you, as MOOCs allow learners the flexibility to take courses at their own pace so you can fit your training into your own schedule.
Building on the MOOC experience, we are also offering Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) exams that allow you to master key Microsoft Azure and cloud-based, cross platform skills that will further differentiate you in the marketplace. We have also created specialized instructor-led courses and certification offers, to be offered globally through our learning partners, for learners who prefer in-person or virtual training experiences.
Our certification program is focused on skill building and validation, and provides access to digital badges that allow you to broadly share your technical credentials across your personal online networks to advance your career.
Now is the time to act – don’t miss this great cloud opportunity and the chance to create something amazing with Microsoft Azure and to pursue your dreams and ambitions.
$99 for One Azure-focused MCP exam voucher + one retake + Practice test (30-day access) + Access to the full MOOC course catalog . Excellent :) :) :) :)
Note: Exam vouchers expire three months from the date of purchase. You must schedule and take the MCP exam (including the retake) within three months of purchase.
Great opportunity for the certification! Thanks for the post!
Great gift from MS for all learning bees
Alison - for how long is this offer valid for? Great prices!
Excellent learning programs!
Can one become an Azure MCSE?
I still have the 4+ retake voucher hoping to use that for 70-532 but from what I see the exam ref book for 70-532 is no longer valid? So I may need all those retakes.
Any other resources for 70-532?
