Microsoft Azure Fundamentals (MAZ9000)
This two-day course will provide foundational level knowledge on cloud concepts: core Azure services, security, privacy, compliance and trust, and Azure pricing and support. This course provides an Azure pass and time for students to participate in hands-on labs.
This course is intended for people who are just beginning to learn about cloud computing and how Microsoft Azure provides that service. The course is suitable for technical and non-technical audiences, who are involved with the cloud and need an overview of Azure products and services.
