>> Microsoft Azure posted 90% growth in the third quarter of 2017 and holds the title as the fastest growing public cloud platform. <<

The opportunity in cloud computing is clear. Most companies are implementing or investigating how to implement cloud technologies within their operations. Don't be left behind. Be ahead of the curve by getting Azure certified, and be ready for the opportunity to advance your career.

The next time your resume is on someone's desk—be it a promotion at work or a new job opportunity—you cannot afford to have such an obvious gap in knowledge. Industry trends show that supporting applications that have cloud-hosted components is becoming the in-demand skill of tomorrow. Having Azure skills on your resume will only help you get in front of more hiring managers, and land more jobs.

This course goes through all of the skills needed to take and pass the Microsoft certification exam, 70-533: Implementing Microsoft Azure Infrastructure Solutions. While other online resources cover bits and pieces of the topic, I can confidently say this course goes deep on everything you need to know for this exam.

This course teaches all of the requirements for this exam, one by one. Each of the things that Microsoft tests for will be covered in this course. The exam has 6 objectives and 25 sub-objectives, and this course has 25 sections that match them exactly.

You get lifetime access to the course, and so there are no silly "30-day" countdowns that require you to pay more to extend access. This course will be here when you need it.
