From the 1st of May 2019 Microsoft is retiring both the Azure AZ-100 and AZ-101 certification exams and replacing them with a single integrated exam AZ-103. You can find out more about this exam here:
I think that this Azure administration certification exam is something that all IT pros working with, or looking to work with Azure should complete. I have written about the benefits of certification here:
Benefits of certification
With this in mind I have now created an AZ-103 online certification preparation course you can take. It is designed to give you the knowledge to pass the AZ-103 exam, typically in a 30 – 45 day period. Note, this online course doesn’t TEACH you Azure from scratch. It helps fill in the gaps in your experience to ensure you are prepared for the exam and therefore stand the best chance of passing. It by no means guarantees you’ll pass, but I feel it does give the best preparation.
The course contains around 100 individual lessons including video tutorials and downloadable material.
You can sign up for the course here:

We catch you up with everything in the Microsoft Cloud and then spend some time talking about the new certifications that have just become available from Microsoft for both Microsoft 365 and Azure. I share some of my experiences and thought around doing these exams and their value to all IT Professionals going forward. We’ll be covering more about certifications down the track but this one should get you thinking about which one you should do!
