Microsoft Azure Certification Exam Training - Frequently Asked Questions

The Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate exam is designed for early stage IT professionals interested in building a career in cloud administration. The Microsoft Azure Administrator exam validates your skills and experience implementing, managing, and monitoring an organization’s Microsoft Azure environment.

If you have a minimum of 6 months of hands-on industry experience in an IT administration role with a concentration in cloud management and exposure to working on the Microsoft Azure platform, you’re ready to start preparing for your Azure certification exam. Register for our Microsoft Azure certification training today!

Before taking the Microsoft Azure certification exam, you should feel confident in demonstrating your knowledge to a potential employer across these 4 core areas:

  • Identities and Governance

    Understand how to manage Azure Active Directory objects, role-based access control (RBAC) subscriptions, and governance in Azure.

  • Implementing and Managing Storage

    Understand how to manage storage accounts, data in Azure storage, and Azure File and Blob storage.

  • Deploying and Managing Azure Compute Resources

    Understand how to deploy and configure virtual machines, containers, and Web Apps in Azure.

  • Configuring and Managing Virtual Networks

    How to configure and manage Azure network capabilities like connectivity services, application protection, application delivery, and network monitoring services.

How confident are you with your troubleshooting and problem-solving skills with servers run on the Azure cloud platform? Take our Azure Fundamentals knowledge quiz to validate your confidence going into the exam and/or applying for your next IT position.

There are two parts to getting ahead in the IT industry: hands-on experience and industry certifications. For many students, they are qualified for a position, but need extra support with exam strategies or exposure and practice to specific areas of Azure cloud administration that they haven’t been exposed to. This is where our certification-based curriculum comes in. Our technical classes provide the ideal blend of skills-based training and industry certification preparation so that you’re confident walking into both the exam booth and your next interview.

The technical skills validated through the Microsoft Azure Administrator Associate certification exam will help prepare you for IT career opportunities such as:

  • Azure Cloud Administrator
  • IT Systems Administrator
  • Technical Support Specialist

If you have no prior IT experience, and you’re planning out your IT career path, having a well-rounded skillset on servers running both Microsoft Azure and Amazon AWS cloud platforms provide the maximum career potential. Getting your foot in the door in IT HelpDesk or IT Support is a great way to get started, giving you access to supporting users running a variety of hardware and software technologies. As you start to build your training and exposure in server management and cloud administration, you’ll increase your problem-solving and troubleshooting skills and will be ready to start studying for the Azure certification exam.

CIAT Career Services team provides personalized career transition support to ensure you translate your technical training and industry certifications into viable career opportunities. Our full suite of career services support includes resume building, LinkedIn profile optimization, mock interview support, career coaching, and job placement support, and specialty workshops, to help ensure you’re positioned for success.

Typically, students enrolled in our Certificate In Cloud Administration program feel confident taking the Microsoft Azure exam after 5 weeks of technical training and exam preparation.

Microsoft Azure is an intermediate level certification that can serve as a launchpad for numerous IT certification and career pathways. The more certs you earn, the more skills you acquire, the more career opportunities will be available.

Your Microsoft Azure exam voucher, retake costs, and exam prep software, are included in the cost of your tuition for any CIAT Bootcamp, Certificate, or Degree programs. CIAT provides unlimited attempts at passing the Microsoft Azure to ensure you start your exam calm and confident, without worrying about what will happen if you don’t pass. Prepare for the exam by taking our AZ-104 training course.

You save hundreds of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses over a DIY studying approach.

Both CIAT Mission Valley and National City campuses include secure and authorized testing center facilities, available to local San Diego students and alumni. For our online students, we work closely with you to help locate and facilitate an authorized testing center near you.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, CIAT has enabled students to take the Microsoft Azure certification exam remotely from the comfort of your own home through Microsoft’s new “Test Anywhere” process. Don’t put your goals on hold or push off until normalcy returns.
